Marseille starlet Bilal Boutobba has reportedly revealed that he wants to leave the French club and join either Arsenal or Serie A giants Juventus.
According to Calciomercato, the 17-year-old attacking midfielder does not believe he can advance his talents at the French side and is keen to move on, despite having already made three appearances at such a tender age.

If Boutobba does make the move to north London, it’s extremely likely it’ll take him at least two seasons to make the first-team step up, while last season’s UEFA Champions League finalists are believed to be monitoring the situation of the player.
The departure of Marco Bielsa is believed to have left the teenager frustrated, with Boutobba refusing to sign a professional contract with the club.
If he does leave, Marseille fans could fear a similar situation to that of Mathieu Flamini, who left the French side at a young age in favour of joining Arsea
