AJ Auxerre wonder kid Sylvio Ouassiero under the radar of European giants – Ligue 1 news
The new wonder kid of French Ligue 1 side AJ Auxerre, Sylvio Ouassiero is on the shelves of some of the biggest footballing clubs in Europe according to reports in French media.
Reports in french media suggest that Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan, English Premier League big-spenders Manchester City and fellow English sides Liverpool and Arsenal are closely monitoring progress of the 17-year-old Frenchman.
If Stade Rennais have proven to be the best breeding ground for youngsters in France in recent years, AJ Auxerre are also considered to be a breeding ground for young talent. The regular presence of 20-year-old Willy Boly and 18-year-old Yaya Sanogo is a
testament to the fact.
Behind those two trendsetters, many more are hopeful of growing and are patiently waiting for their turn. Sylvio Ouassiero is one of those youngsters who is proving to be one of the hottest French talents around.
The right-sided midfielder is also on the shelves of Genoa, Panathinaikos, Atletico Madrid and Malaga with the clubs already under the charms of the talented midfielder. Reports suggest that all of the aforementioned clubs are serious about investing in
the youngster and are not looking to back down.
Blessed with great pace and great dribbling skills along with a low centre of gravity due to his small size, the Sylvio Ouassiero showed last season his exploits for both the French and Auxerre youth sides.

Throughout the summer transfer window, Olympique Lyonnais kept on negotiating a transfer for Delvin N’Dinga but Bourgoin’s unyielding attitude made sure that the defensive midfielder stayed at the club where he has become one of the best defensive midfielders
A similar issue can be expected by clubs looking to sign the highly-talented Sylvio Ouassiero who in all honesty would be better off by staying at his current club in order to gain more experience before jumping ship in the near future.
