A number of Premier League clubs are chasing Monaco winger Nabil Dirar, Sky Sports understands.

Dirar is now back to full fitness after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury last May and Monaco are thought to be willing to let him move on.

The Morocco international joined the Ligue 1 club in January 2012 from Club Brugge in a record fee for the Belgian side and he helped his new team win promotion back to France's top flight.

Dirar is set to find himself down the pecking order of Claudio Ranieri's star-studded squad and the news has alerted a host of teams to his possible availability this month.

Dirar's UK representative, Jonathan Hope, has confirmed he is speaking to several Premier League clubs about a deal for the left-sided winger.

"Nabil has attracted a lot of interest in the Premier League and I'm not surprised because he is an outstanding talent," Hope told Sky Sports.

"I know the financials that would be needed to make such a switch and I will be meeting a few clubs over the next few days to discuss the best approach to satisfy everyone's interests.

"He has had his issues with an injury but he is back fully fit and ready to take his career to the next level.

"Our job is to ensure we speak to the right clubs that suit the player's career."
