French club OGC Nice are preparing a bid for Manchester City defender Issa Kabore, it has been reported. The 21-year-old has been linked with a move away from City in recent weeks, with many Premier League sides including Nottingham Forest said to be interested. 

Kabore spent the last season on loan at City Football Group club Troyes. The Burkina Faso international impressed while playing at wingback for the club, playing 32 times for the French side.

Kabore was signed two years ago by City, but is yet to make his debut for the sky blues. The wingback was initially loaned out to his former side KV Mechelen for the 2020/21 season, before joining Troyes on loan for duration of the last campaign.

However, with the recent interest in the player and City seemingly keen to cash in on young players at the minute, it is likely he may leave before ever playing for the club. According to a report from French outlet Foot Mercato, OGC Nice are now preparing a bid for the young defender. 

The report states that the French club would be willing to bid up to €10million, but that City would want closer to €15million to part with the youngster. The French publication also state that Brentford and Nottingham Forest have also inquired about the 21-year-old. 

If City are insistent on the €15million price tag then it may be difficult for Nice to secure their man. However, the reported interest from English teams could make it likelier for that fee to be met, with English clubs having much more money to spend in the market thanks to TV revenue.
