Lille to land Usman Mamadou Simbakoli from Angers

Ouest-France and Foot Mercato report that Ligue 1 side Lille have prised U19s attacker Usman Mamadou Simbakoli away from Angers.

The goal machine, who has scored 16 goals in 13 matches this season, has recently refused a professional contract offer from Le SCO, this despite multiple meetings taking place between his advisers and the club before the proposal was made.

Simbakoli will turn 19 in a matter of hours, but there is a strong belief among a number of sources that the player has already signed a 5-year deal with Lille.

Of Nigerian and Central Africa Republic descent, the player is understood to have negotiated and agreed to this deal back in February with Les Dogues.
