According to Egyptian football icon Wael Gomaa, Ismael Bennacer will be a hit in the Premier League. He has backed Manchester City to secure the signing of the AC Milan midfielder. There have been reports in recent weeks that the Citizens are preparing an offer for the player.

He has had an impressive run in the Serie A even though AC Milan have been underperforming. His tackling and passing skills have received commendation in game reviews, making him one of the highly rated youngsters in Italy.

Gomaa believes that the midfielder deserves a big-money move following his exploits this season. He mentioned Man City and Paris St-Germain as potential employers, as he is already establishing himself as one of the best players in the league. He revealed that his level develops from one match to another in addition to his distinguished role in the team. He believes a big switch to Manchester City will benefit his talent immensely.

Gomaa is right about the Algerian capabilities and this summer is likely to be a busy one for the midfielder. While AC Milan is yet to indicate if he is on the market or not, PSG is rumoured to be interested in the player as they seek to rejig their midfield this summer.

Bennacer led his home country to the AFCON title in 2019. After his exploits in South Africa, the former Arsenal academy player was attracting interest from top clubs around the world, from MLS football to the Middle East. According to a report he received a bumper deal from an unnamed club in the Middle East. The deal was expected to make the 23-year-old one of the highest paid players in the world.
