The promising playmaker is now available as a free agent after starring at youth level for Le Havre and has attracted the attention of at least two Premier League clubs
Manchester United and Southampton are considering adding the services of France youth international Yasser Larouci to their academy.
The attacking midfielder is currently unattached after turning down a contract with Ligue 2 side Le Havre, where he had captained the Under-16s.
Having impressed on trial at St Mary's Stadium in mid-December, the exciting winger has also attracted the attention of United's scouts.
Quick and strong in the dribble, Larouci is a constant threat in the final third and is skilled in speedy transitions as well as a high press.
