Florian Thauvin

Football News

An immensely talented 20 year old Thauvin plays as an attacking midfielder. Left footed, quick and blessed with excellent close control of the ball, Thauvin has both the physical and technical skills to be a success.

His ten goals for lower mid-table side Bastia last season won him a move to Marseille where, after an indifferent start to the season, he has started to come into his own.

His best performances have come in the Champions League where his assist and goal made Marseille competitive against a strong Napoli side.

He also came on as a substitute in the tie against Arsenal and could have brought about a comeback in the last half hour if he had been able to finish the chances he himself created.

With Marseille having to pay for the rebuilding of the Stade Velodrome a good offer for Thauvin might convince them to part with their prize asset.
