Isaac Lihadji, remember the name. L'Equipe described him as a "pure lefty, an amazing dribbler and 'the next big name', the most exciting promise at Olympique Marseille."

Born in 2002 Lihadji will turn 17 in two days time and is being followed by big European clubs, including Barcelona.

Formed at OM's acadamy, he has a contract until June 2020. The French side want to offer him a professional deal to tie him down for the next few years - or at least stop him leaving for free.

Andoni Zubizarreta, Marseille's sporting director, spoke to president Jacques-Henri Eyraud about hte player and invited him to come and watch him first hand to see his quality on the right flank.

Barca are one of those interested, but Man United, Juve, Milan and Inter have been linked too, by L'Equipe. At 10 years old he took tests to get into La Masia but despite passing, he preferred to stay in France.

An admirer of Ousmane Dembele, Lihadji shares some qualities with his idol - and the same agent - Moussa Sissoko.
