Seems we have signed him according to Romano. The rumoured fee of €20m is scary for a player playing in the Senegalese league. 
What I don’t understand with the club’s policy is why wasn’t he signed by Strasbourg? I know u18 signings don’t count towards FFP, but he will have a better chance of developing quicker in Ligue 1. Also when you already have Lavia & Ugochuwku already as DMs who have months between them and competing for the same one role, does it make sense to sign another player who is 2yrs younger for the same role? Even if the long term plan is to sell one, they all need to be playing regularly to develop.

One of the best performers at the U17 World Cup apparently. Not sure if this is down to his footballing ability or the fact he dwarfs the rest of the kids in the tournament. 

Casadei was the best performer at his youth level tournament, and cannot get starts for Leicester.

Better not be in the 20M region, with all due respect I don't think the team he's playing for is worth 20M. What's the plan here, sign up, loan him, hopefully he turn into a 60M player after he turns him, and sell for profit?
