Manchester City have reportedly stepped up their interest in Angers full-back Rayan Ait-Nouri.
The 18-year-old has broken into the first team at Angers this season, making 17 Ligue 1 appearances and attracting interest from the Premier League as a result.
Pep Guardiola's side have reportedly begun talks over a deal which would see them sign Ait-Nouri this summer but then send him out on loan to a La Liga club for the 2020-21 season.
Left-back has been something of a problem area for Man City in recent years, with first-choice Benjamin Mendy suffering a string of injuries since his arrival at the club.
However, Angers are in no rush to sell the France Under-21 international, who only agreed a new three-year contract at the start of this week.
