Juventus interested in Montpellier’s Othmane Maamma

According to L’ÉquipeJuventus and Freiburg are interested in Montpellier HSC academy player Othmane Maamma (18). 

Maamma, who celebrated his 18th birthday earlier this month, has enjoyed a good start to the season with Les Héraults’ reserve side. In four matches, he already has four assists and two goals, and this has reignited Freiburg’s interest. The Bundesliga side are a long-term admirer of the Morocco U20 international and they are now seriously considering a move in the January transfer window. Maamma is currently only on a one-and-a-half-year intern contract at Montpellier. 

Juventus’ interest is much more recent. The Serie A side, who are attentive to young players coming through in the French market, have enquired about the Moroccan youth international. Should Maamma join the Italian club, he would join their ‘Next Gen’ U23 side. Juventus scouted Maamma whilst he was on international duty in a tournament held in South Korea at the beginning of October.
