  • Moreover, the starlet reportedly visited Real Madrid's training facilities the other day.
  • The 19-year-old enjoyed a breakthrough campaign, contributing three assists in 17 Ligue 1 games.
  • His price could be too high for Barca given his tender age as Angers are asking for €30m for Ait-Nouri.
