The French-born Algerian, who has 29 caps and five goals for the Algeria national side, is currently negotiating a new contract with the Italian club, however he is also on the radar of Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge as well as Atleti coach Diego Simeone.
€13m-rated left back
According to Goal, the Rojiblancos could make a move for the €13m-rated left back in the winter transfer, but any approach could yet be thwarted if the club’s appeal over a FIFA’s transfer sanction proves unsuccessful, with a verdict on the ruling still pending.
Atletico reportedly sent their director of sport to scout the 25-year old in Friday's game against Inter.
