PSG keen for Joane Gadou to sign professional contract as top European clubs circle prospect

According to RMC Sport, Paris Saint-Germain look to secure the future of one of the brightest talents in their academy as they look to sign Joane Gadou (17) to a professional contract. 

The young centre-back has drawn comparisons to former academy product El Chadaille Bitshiabu (18) and with other top European clubs circling, Les Parisiens want to act quickly on a player that could become a part of their future. 

Gadou like Warren Zaïre-Emery (17) before him has progressed past his age range having begun to play matches for Zoumana Camara’s under-19s, which has included three Youth League matches and eleven championship matches (once as a substitute).

The defender has also represented France in the under-17s bracket where his coach, Jean-Luc Vannuchi, referred to Gadou as “a force of nature, he combines power and speed, while being interesting with his use of the ball. He’s able to play short, play long. He has a great mindset. He’s a defender who likes to defend, which isn’t always the case.” 

And while Gadou has yet to make a senior appearance for PSG, he was featured on the bench during the club’s 9-0 victory over US Revel in the Coupe de France.
