The 26-year-old is out of contract next summer and free to speak to English clubs over a free transfer. But Pep Guardiola wants to bring the Algerian ace in early as a replacement for the crocked Benjamin Mendy. The French full-back is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a horror knee injury. Ghoulam is also being looked at by Liverpool and Chelsea after impressing in Serie A over the last few seasons. City are hoping to open talks with Napoli next week when they face each other in the Champions League at the Etihad.
