I'm not clicking on that link, feck the Daily Mail. Huge fan of this lad's name though, sign him up.

Lots of chatter about him and United earlier this week. He's an exciting prospect for sure, could learn a lot from Ronnie (if he stays).

I'd never heard of him before the links, but his runs in the videos I've seen remind me strongly of an in form Rashford.

Also one of the video titles said he was the new Thierry Henry so who am I to disagree.

I don’t see it with this guy at all (YouTube only obviously) He seems really really raw.
Big, fast, can finish, what's not to like? Has lots of attributes that can be nurtured by a decent coach. Understudy to Ronnie for a season and he'll learn and develop a lot. Of course he's going to be raw, he's 19 and not Rooney.

He barely play for Reims, yet we want him? I don't see it either.

Has that Draxler, RvP style (Doesn't have the striking technique like RvP, but more elegant than Draxler though).

While not having meteoric wonder kid breakthrough, he looks an exciting prospect with plenty of potential. Definitely a worthy signing even. Even if we don't have use for him immediately, loan him back or next level somewhere can be an option.

Seems unlikely we'd go for him if this was the case. Our only striker currently is Ronaldo and still up for debate whether he stays.

Is this the same lad Newcastle had a deadline day offer accepted for but he turned them down?

I've only seen a few clips of him , he's young and looks a lot the way he moves like a Henry type but who knows only time will tell. This guy would be a bit of a gamble, this club is known for that as well.
