Manchester City have been told to pay staggering £45million for 21 year old French left-back Rayan Ait-Nouri.

Ait-Nouri has become one of the most wanted men around after an impressive season for Wolves.

Rayan Ait-Nouri, who is a French Under-21 international, was one of the best-performing teenagers in the Premier League last season.

According to The Sun, Manchester City and Chelsea have both enquired about signing the left-back this summer.

Ait-Nouri initially joined Wolves on loan from Angers in October 2020 before making the move permanent at the end of that season.

Wolves paid French club Angers around £10million to make Ait-Nouri’s move permanent last summer, with the 21 year old making 27 appearances for Wolves last season, 23 of which came in the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola is keen on signing a left-back this summer following the indefinite suspension of Benjamin Mendy.

Guardiola is also a big fan of Brighton left-back Marc Cucurella, who came through the Barcelona academy, and will have to choose between signing Rayan Ait-Nouri or Cucurella this summer.

It is believed Guardiola’s first-choice left-back target this summer is Brighton left-back Marc Cucurella, with the Manchester City boss viewing Ait-Nouri as an alternative.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, meaning, sees Ait-Nouri as an ideal replacement for Marcos Alonso who is keen on leaving the Stamford Bridge outfit this summer.

Alonsi has just one year left on his Chelsea contract and is keen on moving to Spain this summer.

French champions Paris Saint-Germain have also reportedly enquired about signing Ait-Nouri this summer.

Wolves are eager to cash in on the interest on Ait-Nouri this summer and are now demanding £45million for the left-back.

Manchester City have already signed strikers Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland, and aside from left-back Guardiola’s only other focus is a new defensive midfielder with Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips top of his shortlist.
