European giants are in hunt for Napoli ace Faouzi Ghoulam.

According to Italian outfit Calciomercato Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham along with La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid are interested in the Algerian International who already has 29 appearances for Napoli this season providing 7 assists and having 86.4 % overall pass success percentage.

On the other hand, Tuttomercatoweb claims that Manchester City are in pole position to sign Ghoulam in a £11.3 m deal. Pep Guardiola has been assured a hefty transfer kitty by City owners this summer and Ghoulam may well be one of the new additions.
