Lille have signed Paris prospect Boubakary Soumaré on a three-year contract.
The 18-year-old midfielder has played 16 times in France’s various youth ranks and also featured in Paris’ UEFA Youth Cup campaign last term.
Soumaré becomes the sixth signing under Marcelo Bielsa’s reign and will hope to learn under the manager, who has a great reputation for aiding young talent.
“Signing here is a huge joy, the achievement of all the efforts made during my years of training. I am committed today with the LOSC, a club which has an interesting project, which trusts young people. I am sure that I will learn a lot,” said Soumaré.
