Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly preparing a transfer bid for AC Milan’s Ismael Bennacer.
According to Le10Sport, the French champions are ready to submit a €30 million offer for the Algeria international once the transfer market reopens.
Bennacer only joined Milan from FC Empoli August, but has impressed in his first season at the San Siro and has made 23 appearances for the Serie A club in the current campaign.
The former Arsenal midfielder was named as the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Player of the Tournament after helping Algeria to the continental crown in Egypt last year. Bennacer played youth football for France before committing his allegiance to Algeria for whom he has won 22 caps since making his debut four years ago.
The 22-year-old played just the one game for Arsenal’s first team in 2015 before moving to Italy on a permanent deal three years ago.
PSG currently boast two African stars on their books in Cameroon’s Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Senegalese midfielder Idrissa Gueye.
