No. There is no M2 slot for M2 SSD in the notebook. There might be an mSATA slot for an mSATA SSD designed to be a caching system for the main mechanical Hard Drive (this way giving some extra speed).

Your best choice is to replace the 2.5" hard drive with a 2.5" SSD such as the 2.5" Samsung 860 Evo or similar.

On page 48 of the service manual, you can see how to replace the drive


Hope it helps,
