Hamza is regarded as the biggest talent in LB Chateauroux at the moment. Everyone in the club are counting that he will soon make a debut in the first team, but this may prove to be impossible, because Moroccan wonderkid is on the radar of Europe’s big clubs, including giants Atletico Madrid and Chelsea wishing to sign the player before he turns eighteen. He was also a member and one of the leaders of Morocco national team that participated at African U-17 Championship 2013 and FIFA U-17 World Cup 2013.
“Young Hamza Sakhi has caught the eye of several European teams during African U-17 Championship. Among them, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid would be most interested in the Franco-Moroccan player profile. The playmaker is very close to departure abroad.”
