A number of Premier League clubs are keeping close tabs on Lille winger Sofiane Boufal, according to L’Equipe.
The highly rated youngster enjoyed a brilliant start to his career with les Dogues and he is now being heavily linked with a big club move.
Even though Lille sporting director claimed few days ago that Boufal would cost at least €20 million, top European sides continue to cast admiring glances his way.
L’Equipe has learned that Manchester City and Arsenal both had scouts present as Lille faced Marseille at Stade Velodrome two weeks ago.
It is believed that Southampton and Stoke City are also hot on the player’s trail, with les Dogues bracing themselves for a flurry of offers in the summer transfer window.
Sofiane Boufal, 22, has featured in 20 league matches this term, scoring 6 goals in the process, and everything suggests he will be leaving his current employers at the end of the season.
