I havent seen this kid play, but I saw he made the team of the week in some French paper that I follow on Facebook. Figured I'd throw his name out there and see what any of you Ligue 1 followers think of him. I always find the prospect of adding young french players to the squad interesting...seems we have had good luck in the past with Frenchies. I dont have the slightest clue how he would fit into our current squad considering he plays wide (I think hes a winger).
