He will undergo his medical examination and, if all goes well, will then commit himself for four years to OM.

At 21, Pape Gueye is about to discover Ligue 1, even if he remains to know Watford’s position on this matter, and the possible remedies that the club in the suburbs of London could try. Meanwhile, OM should not be long in announcing the signing of the Montreuil native (93), who is also experiencing a hectic summer, with the possibility of playing in the Champions League when he only has one full season of Ligue 2 in the legs.
