Faouzi Ghoulam will be in the Napoli shop window for perhaps the last time this evening when the Italian side hosts Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League.

Napoli and City will meet for their Matchday 4, Group F clash at Stadio San Paolo, kick-off at 21h45 CAT.

Ghoulam has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League, with City, Liverpool and Chelsea all reported to be keen on signing the Algerian.

However, Sportmediaset claims that the left-back will sign a new contract with Napoli up to the end of the 2019/20 season, with a buy-out clause of €35-million.

Regardless, Ghoulam is set to be a key figure for Napoli tonight as they look to avenge a 2-1 loss at the Etihad two weeks ago.

The 26-year-old has also been named in Algeria’s 23-man squad named by new coach Rabah Madjer.

The Fennec Foxes are set to face Nigeria and Central African Republic in the upcoming international window.
