According to the Daily Mail, the 23-year-old was taken into questioning by police on Wednesday after being reported in respect of a separate complaint.

The Angers winger will already appear before court later this year for the May incident, in which he was reportedly found masturbating while looking through the window of a fellow tenant in his apartment block, and could now face harsher punishment.

El Melali's attorney, Sandra Chirac Kollarik, explained that the second complaint stems from around the same period of time and that the player was fully co-operating with the investigating officers.
