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.
