Nationality:          French Position:               Attacking Midfielder and Winger Date of birth:        August 17th, 2003. Club:






Defensive contribution


Rayan Cherki is this season’s hottest prospect in Lyon. His quality has put him in the radar of Europe’s biggest clubs. Here is a MOTM performance of his own:
Jean Michel Aulas, Olympique Lyonnais’ president, has said that Cherki can become even a better player than Mbappe. You can not blame, the kid got some sauce in his game. Rayan is an advanced playmaker that likes to have the freedom of movement and surely knows how to use it. His intelligence allows him to find space between the lines. He’s a creative player, deadly on the 1v1 situations. His vision gives dynamism to the team’s last offensive plays. His verticality pushes his team forward to finishing options. Rayan is a very confident football player. He can most likely dribble by using a simple feint or trick to beat his opponents. Benzema’s heir has shown many times his ability to deliver pin-point passes and crosses. He is also very creative when it comes to off-the-ball-movements, he likes to find space to receive the ball in a very good timing and therefore helps linking up his team’s midfield and attack. Rayan Cherki has already said that besided Olympique Lyonnais, Real Madrid is the club he cherishes the most. He’s still young but is very mature. Remember his name.
