Isaac Lihadji to join Lille after failing to agree Marseille pro terms

La Provence report that 17-year-old winger Isaac Lihadji will almost certainly join Ligue 1 side Lille this summer after his current club, Marseille, failed to agree professional terms with him.

Lihadji’s current youth contract expires at the end of this season and has been chased by some of Europe’s elite, including Dortmund, Barcelona and Arsenal. However, Lille Sporting Director Luis Campos has been the most persuasive in the project that he has laid out for the teenager, who is represented by Ousmane Dembélé’s agent Moussa Sissoko.

OM refused to meet Lihadji’s demands, who was asking for a 3-year contract with a monthly €40k salary and a considerable signing bonus.
