Former Manchester City youngster Ahmad Benali has reportedly attracted interest from a number of clubs in the English Championship.

The Libya international, who currently plays for Serie B side Brescia, has 12 months remaining on his contract with the Italian club.

Serie A outfits Sassuolo and Chievo Verona are also interested in Benali, as are unnamed clubs in Germany and the Middle East, according to Sky Sports News.

"I am aware there is a lot of interest in Ahmad given his impressive performances this season," said the player's agent Adam Bouskouchi.

"However, we will first sit down with Brescia and assess what is best for all parties concerned."

Benali, a product of City's youth system, has expressed interest in one day returning to England.
