A couple of days ago, we covered a story from France that Lille were taking an interest in Angel Gomes.
The youngster, who let his contract at Manchester United run down in hope of finding more game time elsewhere, has yet to choose his new club, and appears to be evaluating his options.
Loïc Tanzi, a journalist for RMC Sport, claimed on Monday that Lille ‘appreciate’ his profile and could therefore make a move to sign him in the near future.
Well, La Voix du Nord see it differently in that they absolutely want to sign the now ex-Manchester United youngster, because Luis Campos, their technical director, is ‘doing everything’ to convince him to choose the north of France as his next destination.
Hyped since a very young age in the Old Trafford academies, the 19-year-old never managed to fully breakthrough at the Premier League side, instead seeing the likes of Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams thrive in his stead.
That led to his decision to leave the club this summer after only ever making 10 appearances in all competitions.
Greenwood, in comparison, has 51 to his name and is nearly a year younger.
