RC Lens sets sights on €9m Barcelona wonderkid

RC Lens are reportedly interested in signing teenage defender Mikayil Faye from FC Barcelona, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

The 19-year-old Senegalese centre-back joined Barcelona from NK Kustosija last summer for a fee of €1.5 million. He has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Catalan giants, but has impressed for the club’s youth sides.

Lens are keen to bring Faye to Ligue 1 and are prepared to offer a loan deal with an obligation to buy for a fee of around €9 million.

Faye has been described as a talented and promising defender.

He is strong in the air, good with his feet, and has a good range of passing. He is also comfortable playing in a back three or a back four.

A move to Lens would be a good opportunity for Faye to continue his development and gain first-team experience.

The French club have a good track record of developing young players and have a strong reputation for playing attractive football.
