Aside from Elneny, the Italian outfit are also monitoring Chelsea loanee Abdul Baba Rahman who has only played two La Liga games for Mallorca in this campaign.

Luyindama joined the Lions permanently in the summer from Standard Liege after impressing during his loan spell in the second half of the 2018-19 season.
