23 May

Leicester City, Southampton and Sunderland are all interested in Lyon winger Rachid Ghezzal.

The Algerian has enjoyed a great season in Ligue 1, scoring eight goals and weighing in with the same number of assists in 29 league games.

The 24-year-old’s run in the Lyon team was mainly down to the absence of Nabil Fekir through injury and now that he is back Ghezzal is considering his options.

Ghezzal’s contract expires in a year’s time and he has yet to agree an extension.

Leicester, Southampton and Sunderland, according to Foot Mercato, are all interested and monitoring Ghezzal’s talks with Lyon.

And if the winger snubs the opportunity to pen a new deal then the Premier League trio are ready to make formal offers.
