The 21-year-old midfielder has piqued the interest of several clubs with his performances at the heart of the Nimes midfield this season.


Several scouts from across Europe have been taking in the performance of Ahlinvi and he is being tipped to leave the Ligue 1 club in the future.



According to French outlet Foot Mercato, scouts from Watford, Stuttgart and Young Boys have been regularly watching the midfielder with keen interest.


He has been watched several times by the trio’s scouts and there are suggestions that they could make a move for him soon.



The midfielder has a contract until the end of the season, but Nimes have an option to extend it by one more year.


However, the player’s representatives stressed that for the moment Ahlinvi is focusing on his performances and they will discuss his future with Nimes soon.



Benny Madi and Julien Tournut said: “Matteo is very appreciated by the club hierarchy and has the confidence of the coach.


“He is currently focused on the goals he set at the start of the season


“We will soon make an appointment with the club to discuss his future.”


Ahlinvi has only made nine senior appearances for Nimes thus far.
