Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City are in the picture to sign AS Monaco youngster Mamadou Coulibaly.
The 17-year-old went through Sevran, Villepinte and Epinay before joining the Ligue 1 side’s academy in 2019.
Although yet to represent the French club’s first team, the midfielder has been featuring for their U19 side. His playing style has seen him compared to Eduardo Camavinga, who left Rennes for Real Madrid last summer.
Coulibaly’s displays for Monaco U19s have caught the attention of ‘many clubs in Europe’. That’s according to Gazzetta dello Sport, who explain the teenager has long been on AC Milan’s radar.
The Serie A side are of the belief the Paris-born player can be Franck Kessié’s long-term successor at the San Siro.
Coulibaly’s contract expires in June and he can be taken away from Monaco by paying them a ‘training allowance’. For this reason, ‘other clubs have moved’ and that’s when both Spurs and Manchester City are tagged.
It’s claimed that ‘first of all Tottenham, but also City’, along with German clubs are ‘always lurking’.
As things stand, Coulibaly ‘collects proposals’ and will make a decision on his future ‘by the end of April’, after he turns 18 years of age on April 21st.
