Arnaud Lusamba started to play football in his hometown, Metz, but moved to Nancy Lorraine academy at the age of 13. Thanks to his great games in the youth teams, he quickly received a promotion to the first team, with which he worked hard during pre-season 2014-15. He made his Ligue 2 debut on 1 August 2014 against Dijon FCO and scored the only goal for his team in a 1-1 draw. He became a key player very quickly and is now Pablo Correa’s first name on the teamsheet. He is definitely one of the biggest discoveries of Ligue 2 this season.
