It’s no secret that Adil Aouchiche and Tanguy Kouassi are the two academy products that supporters most want to see sign a professional contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
However, there are other youth products in the system that need professional contracts, which is why, according to Loïc Tanzi of RMC Sport, PSG is on the verge of signing 15-year-old Abdoulaye Kamara.
Mohamed-Ali Cho (Angers) est la première officialisation d'un contrat pro pour un 2004 en France. Si Lesley Ugochukwu (Rennes) doit suivre, Abdoulaye Kamara (#PSG) est prévu également à ses 16 ans #RMCLive https://t.co/VMXWcsZo5r

The teenager is similar to Kouassi in the sense that both players can play as defenders, but if needed, they’ll go up the pitch and start as a defensive midfielder.
Furthermore, the 15-year-old is showing that he can play with and against older players with Kamara being on the U-19 PSG squad currently.
The recently crowned Ligue 1 champions would like to avoid losing another talented young player for nothing as they could potentially lose Kouassi and Aouchiche when the summer transfer window opens.
If Kamara can develop into another a talented player, then they’ll have him under a professional contract as they potentially give him a taste of the first-team action down the road.
However, if the player decides he wants to pursue a career elsewhere, then PSG can recoup a transfer fee as they have for their other young players who have moved on in search of greener pastures.
