Donny Van Der Beek To Consider England Transfer

Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare is one of the most wanted players in the present January window.

The 20-year-old French player is a big target for two of the best Premier League teams namely Chelsea and Manchester United.

On the transfer rumours linking Boubakary Soumare with an exit from Lille, manager Christopher Galtier hinted that the player could leave the French Ligue 1 club this month.

Lille boss Galtier addressed the Soumare Transfer reports during his pre-match press conference for the PSG clash in the league.

Galtier and his Lille players were beaten 2-0 by French champions and league leaders Paris Saint Germain (PSG) at home on Sunday night.

Brazilian international Neymar scored twice as PSG secured victory at the home of Lille thereby extending their lead at the top of the table to ten points.

Boubakary Soumare played 78 minutes of that game before he was replaced by former Blues striker Loic Remy.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard wants to boost his squad as the business end of the season approaches and Boubakary Soumare is a possible addition for him though the Red Devils are also interested.

Chelsea XI: Kepa Arrizabalaga; Reece James, Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta; Boubakary Soumare, N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount; Willian, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham.
