Manchester City Looking To Sign Napoli’s Defender Faouzi Ghoulam

Manchester City are interested in bringing Napoli left-back Faouzi Ghoulam to the Etihad Stadium in January, reports The Sun.

Pep Guardiola is reportedly willing to look into a £3m deal for the 26-year-old, who will be out of contract next summer.

The reports come after full-back Benjamin Mendy suffered a nasty knee injury, ruling him out of the squad in the long term.

Faouzi Ghoulam is refusing to sign improved terms with Napoli , and wants a new challenge abroad.

Ghoulam is set to be offered around £90,000-a-week by City, along with a hefty signing-on bonus.

An Etihad source said: “Ghoulam has been looked at for a while and Pep is very much interested.

“City play Napoli next week and are hoping to steal a march on others about a deal. He’s free to speak to English clubs soon.

“Pep is looking for a cheap replacement for Mendy and the scouts have reported some good things.”
