Coach Djamel Belmadi is eyeing the son of Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane for the national team as he attempts to bring the average age down. 

Two of the goalkeepers involved in the last squad, Raïs M'Bolhi and Azzedine Doukha, are both 33 and Zidane would offer a fresh option. 

Zidane, 21, is also eligible for Spain and France to may resist the call to represent Algeria at first, although Belmadi has already asked the country's FA to look into completing the paperwork. 

The Real Madrid stopper is currently on loan at Racing Santander and is keen to meet with Belmadi to discuss the possibility when time allows.
