Arsenal and Man Utd are reportedly among the sides that are interested in signing Marseille starlet Isaac Lihadji.
According to the Sun, their interest comes as the 17-year-old’s current contract is set to expire in the summer, and the prospect of a new deal looks unlikely given that talks have broken down with Marseille.
French media outlet La Provence claim that it was actually Marseille who pulled out of contract discussions with the talented youngster.
La Provence add that the winger’s agents are keen on being handed a three-year deal worth €10,000-a-week (£8.5k).
It’s not surprising to see that Marseille have pulled out of talks given the demands, this doesn’t look feasible at all for the French side.
Isaac Lihadji has featured twice in Ligue 1 for Marseille, although the ace’s last first-team matches came at the end of October.
The attacker is undoubtedly regarded as one of France’s most exciting talents with Transfermarkt suggesting that the wide man has won over 20 youth caps for Les Bleus’ through Under-16’s to Under-18’s level.
Isaac Lihadji could surely settle in at Arsenal reasonably quickly, the Gunners have always boasted a squad that includes many Frenchmen or players that rose to stardom in Ligue 1 before joining the Emirates outfit.
