It is said that Manchester City, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Inter Milan, are all tracking the French Under-21s international.

Cameroon-born Umtiti, 21, is valued at £11m and can play centre-back or left-back.

Liverpool have also expressed interest. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has issues in defence, with former Lyon centre-back Dejan Lovren, 25, having struggled in his first season at Anfield after a £20m move from Southampton.
