Lille Braced for Boubakary Soumare Bid


Premier League leaders Manchester City have been keeping a close tab on Lille talent Boubakary Soumare for quite some time now.

It appears that the Citizens are prepared to step up their interest this January with a number of media reporting that the Etihad outfit are getting ready to submit a transfer bid for the 18-year-old midfielder.

Manchester City chief Brian Marwood travelled to France this weekend to check on the midfield marvel for one last time ahead of the January approach.

Lille are said to be holding out for a £35 million valuation with Manchester City reportedly keen to invest that amount of money on a youngster who’s being described as the new Yaya Toure.
