Reported Derby County forward target Stephy Mavididi is currently outperforming Paris Saint-Germain’s French World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe.

Former Arsenal youngster Mavididi was one of the most sought-after players last summer.

TEAMtalk claim Derby, Leeds United, Aston Villa, Newcastle United, Everton and Middlesbrough were all keen on a move for the Derby-born player.

Mavididi left Arsenal to join Juventus U23s in the summer of 2018.

After a season impressing for the Juve youth side, the Italian giants were keen to loan him out and get senior experience – prompting a scramble for his signature.

French side Dijon won the race and Mavididi is now starting to show his potential.

After a slow start, the England U20 international has posted six goals and one assist in his last seven games, including a brace in the 3-3 draw with Nantes.

 

Since mid-January, Mavididi has outperformed Mbappe. The French superstar who cost PSG a whopping £165 million has three goals and one assist in his last seven games.

Mavididi can play across the front three. However, with his pace and trickery, he is suited to a wide role with licence to cut in from the flank and cause havoc.

Derby have lacked width all season. The Rams have played Tom Lawrence, Duane Holmes and Martyn Waghorn out wide, but each player is better centrally.

Rams boss Phillip Cocu will surely make a new winger a top priority this summer. Mavididi would be a sound option providing Juve facilitate another loan deal.
