Everton has missed out on signing LOSC Lille winger Noah Fatar as the Frenchman agrees a move to stay in Ligue 1 and join Angers.
LOSC Lille is a club known to provide one of the best facilities for the development of young wingers. Eden Hazard, Nicolas Pepe and Gervinho will attest the above notion. These superstars spent a lot of time at Lille polishing their skills and later left for bigger clubs where they earned a big name for themselves.
Noah Fatar is also following the same path after spending three seasons at Stade Pierre Mauroy. The youngster came to LOSC Lille at the age of 15 and will leave Les Dogues for another Ligue 1 side Angers. According to France Football, the 18 year old Franco-Moroccan will join Angers next season and will pen a deal until 2023, as Everton have missed out on signing the hot property.
Marcel Brands is said to be a fan of Fatar and made serious offers to sign the 18 year old. However, the exciting prospect rejected the Everton deal and chose to stay in Ligue 1. Brands and the club board has been magnificent in discovering unheard talent and Noah Fatar could have been another major coup.

However, it was a right move by Fatar to reject an advance from the Toffees as of now. The 18 year old has never featured in a Ligue 1 game and was still an academy player at Lille. Noah Fatar needs to blend in the demands of professional football and Angers will be a right step. Angers SCO coach Stephane Moulin can hand Fatar his first Ligue 1 debut and chances of playing regular football at Stade Raymond Kopa are greater than Lille or Merseyside.
At Everton, he would not have made the cut to the first team easily. It would be easy to predict that he would play mostly in the U-23 team. Once he blossoms into a top winger, a move to the Premier League will be favorable. So the idea of seeing Noah Fatar at Goodison Park in the future shouldn’t be ruled out.
