Lyon to beat Juventus to Eli Wissa (16)

L’Équipe report this morning that Lyon have won the race to sign French teenage sensation and 16-year-old attacker Eli Wissa to a professional contract.

The current Laval (3rd division) prospect will shortly pen a deal on professional terms with Les Gones, in a move that sees OL beat Juventus, who were in pole position for several weeks, to the punch.

This deal has been orchestrated by Lyon’s Head of Scouting Florian Maurice, for a player in Wissa who has played for France at U16 level.
