In an interview with Birmingham Live, an unnamed source from Angers has given his verdict of Wolves new boy Rayan Aït-Nouri.

Aït-Nouri turned heads last season with a handful of standout performances and now belongs to Wolves after the Ligue 1 side accepted a loan deal which includes a reported €15m option to buy.

Though the left-back still has a lot of room to improve, at just 19 years old, he has the potential to reach heights that few could fathom.

“His weakness is still the defensive part of his game and he knows that,” the source said.

“He worked a lot with the coach to get better and improve. He still needs to improve but he has really strong qualities. He became very important in a few matches last season.

“He needs some time on the pitch to get better again and then it will be fine and you will see his quality.

“The technical part is above average. He’s really good with the ball, confident, he’s good at dribbling, like a modern left-back. He is very good at crossing from his wing.

“In France, there are not many left-backs that can be that good in that part of the game. He had maybe three or four assists last year which isn’t bad for such a young player.”

In 23 career appearances, all in Ligue 1, Aït-Nouri dished out four assists. He was with the France U-21s over the international break and featured in victories over Liechtenstein and Slovakia.
