Josh Harrop attracting interest from Lyon, Bordeaux and Rennes – report

Josh Harrop has attracted interest from Ligue 1 sides Lyon, Bordeaux and Rennes after not receiving a new contract this summer, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

The 21-year-old announced himself to the footballing world with a powerful performance, complimented by a sensational strike after just 15 minutes, on his senior debut against Crystal Palace on the final day of the 2016/17 campaign.

It was reported by M.E.N’s Samuel Luckhurst last month that the Englishman would be offered a new deal at Old Trafford in response.

However, with no such deal agreed, Di Marzio has confirmed that Harrop, who has also been linked with Preston North End, could depart this summer after emerging on the radar of several Ligue 1 sides.

The exact nature of Harrop’s future remains uncertain, but one thing we can know for certain is that those 90 minutes against Palace immediately piqued the interest of several sides across not just this country but Europe instead.

Youngsters with just one senior game under their belt don’t normally think about a move abroad, but it is easy to forget that Harrop is 21, older than Anthony Martial, and will need to start thinking about how he turns his explosive introduction to life at the top into something sustainable over the next few years.
