Manchester City and Manchester United are both interested in signing AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer, according to a report.

AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer will reportedly be the subject of interest from both Manchester City and Manchester United during this summer's transfer window.

The 22-year-old joined Milan from Empoli last summer and has featured on 23 occasions for the Italian giants during the 2019-20 campaign.

Bennacer has a contract at San Siro until June 2024, although it has been alleged that there is a £45m release clause in his current deal.

Paris Saint-Germain are thought to be weighing up a summer move, but according to RMC Sport, both City and United are also interested in his services.

Bennacer, who has been capped on 22 occasions by Algeria, previously represented Arsenal between 2015 and 2017 but only made one first-team appearance for the London club.

The versatile midfielder was named the Best Player of the Africa Cup of Nations in 2019.
