PSG coach Tuchel hails whizkid Kouassi as Man City, RB clubs circle

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel is full of praise for teenager Tanguy Kouassi - even though he could lose the midfielder to Manchester City next month.

Still on semi-pro terms at PSG, the 17 year-old made his Champions League debut in the 5-0 rout of Champions League opponents Galatasaray - all the while his minders are in talks with City.

Tuchel enthused: “I expected such a performance from him. He's great. He has qualities and a great personality. He started in difficult conditions in Montpellier. He confirmed in the Champions League what was expected of him."

L'Equipe says PSG officials are concerned knowing Kouassi's agents have been making regular visits to England over the past month. City are the club believed to be in contact.

There are others inside PSG whom believe he has already agreed terms with Red Bull, where he could end up at either RB Leipzig or RB Salzburg in January.
