Premier League side Crystal Palace want to complete a deal for 18-year-old left-back Rayan Ait-Nouri this January, according to French media outlet L’Equipe.
However, the Eagles will have to be quick as they face competition from Spanish giants Atletico Madrid for the defender.
Ait-Nouri was born in France to Algerian parents, and plays for Ligue 1 side Angers in the French top tier.
Palace have already been linked with one Algerian this month in the form of central midfielder Nabil Bentaleb. The youngster is represented by super agent Jorge Mendes.
The transfer window is open until the end of the month. Follow all the Algerian football transfers in English with DZ Football.
