The bamboozling footwork, undeniable flair and opportunistic nature of a young Corsican has ignited excitement around the Stade de la Mosson since 2009. 

One of the small remnants remaining from Montpellier's triumphant 2012 title winning campaign, Remy Cabella embodies the optimism of the struggling side. His youthful exuberance and creativity are helping to alleviate the bitterness felt by the loss of Olivier Giroud and Younes Belhanda in consecutive seasons. 

Blessed with obvious technical prowess, Cabella has risen dramatically through the ranks to demonstrate his aforementioned talents and lay bare his name amongst the established stars migrating to Ligue 1. 

At the pivotal age of 23 years old he is in a crucial stage in his development and Montpellier has blessed him with the stage to be expressive via his vivacious individuality. 

These very opportunities have seen Cabella capture the nation's imagination and the apparent idealistic view is that he will inevitably be thrusted into France's national side alongside the adventurous and inventive Antoine Griezmann. 

The competitiveness that has erupted in French football's top tier can only be auspicious and beneficial. Thus helping to improve the overall game of the youngster and his rise to ascension will not be a fortuitous one but rather one of work ethic and perseverance. Traits that can be arrogantly abandoned in today's footballing world and the callous never ending fight for the limelight. 

Countless comparisons have seen Remy Cabella likened to former temperamental but extremely talented Marseille live wire Samir Nasri. The games of both are eerily similar and uncanny in various ways but the Manchester City player's vitriolic and volatile temperament is where the likeness is severed. 

The 2013 season will be one of the most vital in his early career and if as expected Montpellier do find it difficult to make a stamp domestically, it is impossible not to think a club will be intrigued by Cabella.

Although any potential transfer would be a path predicted to be more akin to Nasri's than in Younes Belhanda's somewhat bizarre Ukrainian expedition.
