After news emerged last week that Liverpool were interested in young French midfielder, I (@ScottTaylorUK), will give you more information on the young startlet.

Aged just 16, Lopez has attracted interest from many clubs such as Arsenal and Liverpool and his talent certainly does rectify why he has this amount of interest. His predominant position is an attacking midfielder and with his European experience having played in the UEFA Youth League against teams such as Borussia Dortmund, he will be a key asset if he comes to Liverpool.

New information suggested that the Frenchman has snubbed a move to England and has in fact committed his future with the Ligue 1 side, but because he cannot sign a professional contract until he is 17 years of age, then his future is still up in the air. And with his birthday not until December, Marseille face an anxious 9 month wait to see if they can keep hold of their star man.
