When clubs of the stature of Chelsea and Manchester City show interest, you know the talent is genuine. But they aren’t the only ones. Teams like Newcastle United have also thrown their hat into the ring. Meanwhile, Brentford, Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United might not have the same allure, but their admiration for the young midfielder is just as intense.

Yet, it’s not just English clubs that have been wooed. From the coasts of Spain, with the likes of Atletico Madrid and Valencia taking note, to the French lands where Lens, Marseille, and Nice have kept tabs, Ouedraogo’s magic is evident.
