Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport reports today that the deal for Lucien Agoume to Inter from FC Sochaux-Montbeliard, has been completed.

The French club could have lost him for free when his contract expires in June 2020, but Inter came to their rescue with a deal worth €4.5 million, a bargain for a player born in 2002 and dubbed to be the new Paul Pogba.

“Born in Yaounde, Cameroon, Agoume has played his international football with France making four appearances for the U16’s and scoring two goals, plus his 13 appearances with the U17’s, with whom he has also scored two goals.”

“He made his debut for the senior team on October 19th 2018, in a 2-1 win over ESTAC Troyes in Ligue 2 with Sochaux at the age of 16. Since then, the now 17 year old has made 16 appearances for Sochaux, totaling 943 minutes including Coupe de France.”

“He is an extremely versatile midfielder, although he prefers being in the middle of the pitch, his strengths are his passing, vision, technique and fitness, while he is considered a weak shooter.”
