EXCLUSIVE: Agent unsurprised Man Utd, Barcelona want 'world's best left-back' Faouzi Ghoulam

Fabrizio Ferrari isn't surprised Napoli fullback Faouzi Ghoulam is attracting interest from Europe's biggest clubs.

Ghoulam is currently working his way back from knee surgery, having suffered a setback in training earlier this month. His operation had been held in November.

The Algeria international has been linked with Manchester United and Barcelona this season amid claims both European giants are willing to meet his £52m buyout clause.

Ferrari, who negotiated Ghoulam's move from St Etienne to Napoli almost four years ago, is in no doubt about the 27 year-old's quality. The Italian agent, having recognised his potential, placed Ghoulam at Napoli for a knockdown €340,000.

"Ghoulam has been very unlucky with his injury, that's all," he told Tribalfootball.com, arguing the defender is among the best left-backs in the world.
