Manchester City are reviving a bid for Ghent winger Yassine El Ghanassy.

The Daily Mail says City are poised swoop for Belgian winger El Ghanassy after failing to land the Gent midfielder in January.

El Ghanassy, who earned his first full cap for Belgium against Finland in February, has been followed by a number of Europe's elite clubs.

Gent have been alerted to interest from Celtic, Inter Milan and Lille, but City would win any race to sign the 20-year-old, should they make an offer in January.

City boss Roberto Mancini rates the 20-year-old and tried to sign him from Gent as a replacement for the injured Adam Johnson.
