Bundesliga team VFB Stuttgart are interested in signing Ramy Bensebaini from French side Rennes, according to media outlet L’Equipe.
The Algerian international defender, who has a deal with Rennes that runs until summer 2020, helped the French side qualify for the Europa League during the 2017/18 season as they finished in a rather impressive 5th place in Ligue 1.
Bensebaini joined Rennes in 2016, and recently scored his first ever goal for the Algerian national team against Cape Verde a few weeks ago in a friendly match.
Born in Constantine, he came through the ranks at Paradou AC before moving on to football in Europe. His height and well-timed tackles would be a great addition to the Bundesliga outfit’s backline.
Stuttgart finished 7th in Germany last season, and have the likes of French international Benjamin Pavard in defence. There are other Algerians that currently play in that league, such as Nabil Bentaleb at Schalke and Ishak Belfodil at Hoffenheim.
And now Rennes could be willing to let Bensebaini leave if the price for the 23-year-old is good enough. He has 11 caps for Algeria and featured at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations. Follow all the transfer rumours surrounding Algerian footballers on DZ Football this summer.
