Juventus starlet Kingsley Coman is being linked with a return to French Ligue 1, L’Equipe has learned.
The talented forward has shown some potential since joining the Bianconeri on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain, but it is clear he will have to leave in Turin in order to gain much needed first team experience next season.
And while Palermo hope to recruit Coman as part of the deal taking Paulo Dybala to Juventus, Ligue 1 sides Lille and Saint Etienne are also showing interest in the player.
The two clubs hope to sign the youngster on a season-long loan, and there is a good chance the 18-year-old will be keen on returning to France.
After making just three league appearances for Paris Saint-Germain, Coman went on to make 14 Serie A outings for the Bianconeri, while scoring the only goal of the season in the Coppa Italia win over Hellas Verona.
