Amiens President Joannin on Gaël Kakuta’s future: “We are still hopeful.”

Speaking to RMC, Ligue 1 side Amiens’ President Bernard Joannin has commented on the future of French Rayo Vallecano winger Gaël Kakuta, confirming that his Picardy side are still in the race to sign him.

“Since Gaël left (he spent the 2017/18 campaign on loan), I have stayed in contact with him, John (Williams, Sporting Director) has stayed in contact with him. At Amiens, he had the best season of his career. There is no reason why that couldn’t happen a second time. In a contract, there are three parties. Gaël, Amiens and Rayo Vallecano. We are speaking with Rayo, there are things that we agree on, there are other things that we don’t agree on. Cross your fingers.”
