City manager Pep Guardiola is known for being flexible with player positioning, as we have seen from the likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Fabian Delph, and others who have played outside of their natural position for Manchester City in recent seasons.

For Lens, raising money may be on the agenda in the summer as French football continues to suffer losses due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and the loss of TV revenue for the league.

With the 28-year-old currently under contract until 2023, a transfer fee between €6 million and €10 million could be considered for the full-back.

Along with Manchester City, Chelsea, Sevilla and an unnamed Turkish club are all said to have shown interest in the Lens man.
