However, those deals appear unlikely to come off and talkSPORT claim the champions have now contacted Taider’s agent to register their interest in signing the £15m-rated Bologna youngster.
The 20-year-old, who was born in France and capped by them at Under-20 level before registering with Algeria at senior level, joined Bologna from Grenoble in 2011 and has emerged as one of the most highly-rated young midfielder in Serie A.
