Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly launched a bid to sign Napoli left-back Faouzi Ghoulam ahead of the January transfer window.

According to Naples-based Radio Kiss Kiss, the Red Devils made a bid of around £40m for the Algerian international defender and it was swiftly rejected by the Italian club.

The report further claimed that Ghoulam is demanding for weekly wages in the excess of £100,000.

The 27-year-old had six months left on his contract before putting pen to paper on a new deal in December 2017.

Apart from Manchester United, other Premier League giants like Liverpool and Manchester City have been heavily linked with him.

Liverpool are on the lookout for a solid left-back to challenge first choice Andy Robertson for a spot in the starting lineup.

For Manchester City, the left-back spot has been somewhat problematic for manager Pep Guardiola following the injuries suffered by first choice Benjamin Mendy.

The France World Cup winner is the only recognised left-back at Manchester City and manager Pep Guardiola has identified Faouzi Ghoulam as a backup option ahead of the January transfer window.

Mendy was injured for the majority of last season after suffering a serious knee injury and has already been out with an injury in this campaign.
