According to a report from 90min, the two English football teams are Man City and West Ham United have jumped into the race to recruit Quentin Merlin. The 21-year-old left-back impressed the experts in the Nantes shirt.
Both Man City and West Ham want to add and strengthen the left-back position. According to 90min, two football teams from the Mist country sent scouts to France to watch Merlin’s performance.
Merlin is considered one of the top young talents in Ligue 1 currently. The 21-year-old star was called up by Thierry Henry to the French U21 team. In the club shirt, Merlin is a Nantes member who won the Coupe de France in 2022.
PSG became the biggest competitor to Man City and West Ham in this deal. The Ligue 1 defending champion plans to reinforce and add a new left-back in the context of Nuno Mendes being sidelined for 4 months due to a hamstring injury.
The current contract between Merlin and Nantes is valid until 2026. The French defender’s transfer fee is about 10 million euros. Numbers cannot make it difficult for big teams to have financial potential.
