RMC Sport report that a hat-trick of clubs have approached 19-year-old attacking midfielder Bilal Benkhedim, who currently plies his trade at St Étienne.
OGC Nice, AC Milan and Valencia have all made initial enquiries in recent days for a player under contract with Les Verts until 2022.
At the moment, the player has not told his current club’s board of any desire to depart. Les Verts hope to count on him next season as part of Claude Puel’s radical shakeup.
He made 6 appearances this season, and although there isn’t a single player going into the summer who is completely “not for sale” owing to the club’s precarious financial situation, Puel wants to make him a cornerstone of the new regime in the medium to long term.
