Lorient aren’t always known for producing such incredible youngsters. But they do pick up youth players on the cheap and then develop them before selling them for such an inflated fee. Raphael Guerreiro, Matteo Guendouzi, and Laurent Koscielny are just some examples of how they develop players and do business.

Lately, some fresh names have arisen and impressed many scouts around Europe. Names like Julien Ponce, Ilan Meslier, and Alexis Claude-Maurice are not really that unfamiliar anymore now. All three impressed heavily last season and are already linked with big moves this summer.

However, one player, who is probably just as equally talented – albeit slightly older – is strangely rarely mentioned in the news lately. Not even mentioned that much anywhere throughout their last Ligue 2 campaign. Now with Ligue 2 already rolling, it looks likely that he’ll be staying with the club. It is Yoane Wissa, a 1996-born versatile forward and this scout report will show you why he deserves some recognition as well.

Wissa contributed heavily for his team last season. He scored six goals and created six as well across all competitions in 39 games for Lorient. However, his impressive performances were not mentioned much and Wissa still hasn’t gained a lot of attention this summer.
