Abdelslam went on the run following the attacks on Friday, the only gunman known to have escaped, and France’s interior ministry warned Spanish authorities he could be heading south towards Spain, according to reports in the Spanish media.
French police released a photo of the suspect they were looking for in connection with the attacks, describing him as a "dangerous individual".
Although there was no specific intelligence suggesting that Abdelslam had connections in Spain, it was considered one of several possible destinations.
French police carried out dozens of pre-dawnraids on suspected Islamists Monday, focusing particularly on the Lyon area where they made five arrests and seized "an arsenal" of weapons, police sources said.
