We were linked with Stade Reims’ exciting young winger Remi Oudin just a few weeks ago. He is an up and coming player in Ligue 1 who has earned rave reviews this year.
Remi Oudin – exciting player in high demand
There is a report in the Sun that Watford have had a €7M bid for the player rejected by Reims. This fee is well below Reims’ valuation of their young star.
There are reports circulating over the past few months pinning fees anywhere from €10M to as high as €25M for the player.

A bid this low was almost certain to fail. We would have half expected Lee Charnley to have made a bid of this amount.
It will be interesting to see if any of the clubs linked with the player follow up with improved bids or if Watford comes back with a better offer.
The player has recently been linked with Fiorentina, Lazio, Nice, as well as Newcastle.
He is very versatile and has played on both wings, as a striker, and an attacking midfielder this term. The Reims’ academy product has scored 16 goals and added 10 assists since joining the first team two years ago.
This is a player very much on the rise. If Newcastle are truly interested, they need to get Rafa Benitez under contract before targets like this are snapped up.
