At the tender age of 16, Willem Geubbels celebrated his professional debut in Ligue 1 last September at French first division club Olympique Lyon. But a future of the talented attacker is by no means assured in Lyon.
As reported by “goal.com”, Geubbels has rejected a contract offer. Therefore, it remains for the time being that the youngster leaves his club for the summer of 2019. If Lyon wants to collect a transfer fee, a farewell is conceivable in the coming months. Now scents loud “L’Equipe” Bundesliga club RB Leipzig his chance to a commitment of the wing-keeper.
The chances of a transfer are not bad. In recent years, young French players have switched to the Bundesliga. For example, the Leipzigers recently grabbed attacker Jean-Kévin Augustin from PSG, who has promised better chances in Germany. A similar way could Geubbels, which is also associated with FC Bayern Munich, now also hit.
However, as the radio station “RMC Sport” reports, the AS Monaco shows great interest in the U17 national player. Discussions with the club from the Principality are already well advanced. According to “goal.com”, FC Barcelona and Chelsea are also among those who are interested.
In the meantime, the brilliant development for Geubbels has not progressed in this calendar year. After a total of four missions for the professionals, the 16-year-old was last used only in the U19 by Olympique Lyon.
