French scout, Mickaël Marques has drawn parallels between Ghanaian winger Ernest Nuamah and upcoming Manchester City addition Jeremy Doku, as well as Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies.
The gifted 19-year-old is on the brink of being revealed as the latest acquisition for Olympique Lyonnais, having reached an agreement to join the renowned French club from FC Nordsjaelland.
Having observed the player for a considerable period, Marques is of the opinion that Lyon is securing a player with the capacity to evolve into one of the globe’s premier talents.
“In fact, it’s a mix between Doku and Davies if we had to compare him,” said Marques, as quoted by Eurosport.
“He is a player who is very powerful physically, with a very tanked upper body, which allows him to hold the shock in the duels. He makes a difference with his explosiveness.
“He really has crazy support, with and without the ball. A call-against-call on his part can leave anyone on the spot.
“And with the ball, he takes advantage of his motor skills to infiltrate small spaces; he fixes, attracts the attention of the defence, and frees up spaces for others.
“And, often, he manages to get by. He is also very fast. Against Viborg, a stat came out: Nuamah had been flashed at 36 km/h.I think that already puts him among the three or five fastest players in L1.”
Nuamah arrives in France as the best player from the Danish League last season.
