Manchester United and Liverpool are the latest sides thought to be showing an interest in Lille's Kader Keita.
The Ivory Coast winger is a long-term target of a host of top European clubs, having shown his potential in just over a season at Lille.
Keita is now proving his talent on the European stage in the UEFA Champions League and the likes of Internazionale, Roma and Lyon have all been credited with an interest.
Portsmouth were previously linked with the 25-year-old but could face stiff competition to bring him to The Premiership with the reported interest of Liverpool and United.
Keita recently penned a contract extension through to 2010 with Lille and the Ligue 1 club are unlikely to consider selling in the January transfer window.
However, Lille are understood to be willing to allow Keita to leave next summer should a suitable offer come in for the Ivorian.
