Atletico Madrid challenge Liverpool for Angers youngster Rayan Ait Nouri

Atletico Madrid are eyeing Angers youngster Rayan Ait Nouri.

Courrier de L'Ouest says Atleti have their sights set on teenage full-back Nouri. The 16-year-old defender, who is of Algerian origin, is considered one of the great promises of Angers youth academy.

Nouri, who currently plays for the reserves, recently went professional with Angers and has already attracted interest from several clubs, such as Manchester City, Monaco and particularly Liverpool, who were close to whisking him away to Anfield last summer.

Under his present contractual arrangement with Angers, Nouri is valued at 10 million euros. He is a youth international at Under-17 level with France and tipped to be one of the full-backs for the future with Les Bleus for his attacking skills and rapid progression.
