Agent of ex-Arsenal striker Mavididi explains Juventus AND Dijon choices

The agent of former Arsenal striker Stephy Mavididi is confident Dijon in Ligue 1 is the right platform for him.

The young attacker is on-loan at Dijon from Juventus with an option to sign permanently should they stay up.

Yves Le Mee told Foot Mercato: "Juve scouted him during his loan with Preston. Stephy had a profile that did not exist at Juventus.

"Stephy needed game time, space. I have known (Juve sports chief) Fabio Paratici for 15 years and the contribution of Peguy Luyindula in this case was crucial. Peguy came to Turin for negotiations, he convinced the kid. A former player who played at PSG at OM, and in France team, importantly speaks.

"In France, we do not look at age, and Dijon was the ideal opportunity.

"The interest for DFCO is that the player succeeds and that the club stays up. If Stephy is efficient and he scores goals, Dijon can achieve a nice added value."
