Kevin Monnet-Paquet - 19 year-old Lens Striker

 

It appears that Newcastle’s scouting network have found out that Lens forward Kevin Monnet-Paquet is unwilling to play Ligue 2 football next season with his club, RC Lens.

 

Lens finished 3rd bottom of the French Ligue 1 last season, and were relegated along with Strasbourg and Metz.

 

Newcastle United are said to be watching developments closely, and may bid for the player.

 

Kevin, who stands 6′0″ tall, has already played for Lens a number of times and made his debut for the club a full two years ago, he’s that good.

 

He has played for the French side at Under-18 and Under-19 levels, and is thought to be a top prospect for the future.

 

He was born in Bourgoin-Jallieu, France and turns 20 years old next month.

 

The New Henry ?

Well, it's all I know about the guy. Until I actually see the guy play, I'm basing my opinion on him from that. So yeah, I'm not going to pretend I wasn't interested on how this all turns out because of something I saw in a game.

Well, that failed miserably. I was meant to be copying NE5. Thanks. Ruined my night.

Would be great to get him in, he can understudy Owen and take over for him when he gets crocked, as usual.

we've taken a metz lad on trial and are being linked to this kid now - 2 relegated french clubs, interesting transfer policy if the 2nd one is true

 

not saying they can't be good 'cause they were in relegated teams, far from it, just that it's not what i'd been hoping for personally...sounds like we're looking at them 'cause they'll be cheap as much as anything else
