Faouzi Ghoulam admits he’s flattered to be linked with a move to Manchester United.
The 22-year-old has emerged as a potential candidate to replace Patrice Evra at Old Trafford, whilst AC Milan are also reported to be keeping tabs on the player.
And, whilst he’s focused on playing his best for St Etienne in Ligue 1, the left-back can’t help but admit that he’s happy to be on the Red Devils radar.
"I would love to finish the season her now," he told Sky Sports.
"However, things go quickly in football so we never know what is next.
"Manchester United? You are always flattered when such a big club is linked with you but I do not want to dream, the reality is to give 100 per-cent for St Etienne and see what will happen next."
David Moyes was linked with another left-back in the summer, as Leighton Baines was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.
The Manchester United manager now appears to have set his sights on the one-cap Algerian international, but the Premier League champions aren't the only club keen on the player.
Indeed, Liverpool were linked with a move for the player in the summer, as Brendan Rodgers looked to strengthen at the back.
Aly Cissokho was drafted in on a season-long loan deal, but the position will need to be filled permanently at Anfield when the Frenchman returns to Valencia.
Ghoulam could again be on the Liverpool radar, but the Merseyside giants now know they will face a battle for the signature.
It's unclear how much Manchester United would have to pay to secure his signature, but the additional interest would almost certainly drive up Ghoulam's price.
