Italian outfit Brescia are leading the chase for Manchester City youngster Ahmad Benali, Sky Sports understands.
Benali's contract at the Etihad expires this month and he is set to leave the club where he came through the ranks.
Sky Sports revealed earlier in the summer that a number of Championship clubs were keen on landing him.
However, interest on the continent has now emerged after he made his debut for the Libya national side.
Now a fully-fledged international, the young midfielder has been approached by clubs from Italy, Spain, Turkey, France and Germany - together with the sides in England.
But it is Serie B Brescia who are currently leading the chase and are pushing for a deal to be done.
