Valencia keen on Lille’s Soumare

Valencia remain confident of signing Lille’s teenage midfielder Boubakary Soumare in the summer transfer window, according to reports in Spain.

Representatives of the France Under-19 international have met with Los Che officials on several occasions, according to a report in Marca, with a view to a summer move.

The 19-year-old is one of the highest-rated young players in France and joined Lille from Paris Saint-Germain last summer and has featured in 14 Ligue 1 outings this season.

Valencia director Pablo Longoria is reportedly the driving force behind the deal with the Spanish club keen to reinforce their squad ahead of next season with Andreas Pereira set to end his loan stay from Manchester United.
