Manchester City lodged a late bid worth as much as £22m for Lille's teen star Boubakary Soumaré.

According to reports in France, the Premier League's runaway leaders made a late offer to land the midfielder, who was also the subject of interest from Monaco .

But Lille managed to keep hold of 18-year-old Soumare, although they are bracing themselves for more incoming bids when the summer window opens.

The Frenchman has impressed during his breakthrough season as a first-team player and has appeared eight times in Ligue 1 so far.

His form is said to have caught the eye of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola , who is on the lookout for more options in the defensive midfield area.

And French outlet Le10Sport claim City offered around £10.5m up front with another £11.5m in performance related add-ons.

But should Soumare continue his progress this season, that fee could well be higher this summer.
