Ayyoub Bouaddi, born on October 2, 2007, has caught the attention of top European clubs. At the age of 16, Bouaddi has already made his debut for Lille's first team, making him the youngest ever player to feature in European competitions. He is also the first player born in 2007 to play in Ligue 1.
Bouaddi has already made four appearances for Lille's senior team, with two of them as a starter. His performances have been impressive, and he has gained valuable experience in the European competitions. In addition, he is a key player in the French U17 national team, occupying the number 8 position.
Apart from his on-field abilities, Bouaddi's versatility and talents have also attracted attention. He has excellent public speaking skills and has showcased his talent in front of the French First Lady, Brigitte Macron.
As a midfielder, Bouaddi possesses great ball control, rhythm, and dribbling skills which are outstanding for someone of his age. He also excels in passing, making him a complete player.

However, he still needs to improve his physicality and balance, as well as gain more experience at the senior level. At times, he tends to use excessive touch and can improve his ball control. His dribbling and escaping skills also need refinement, as seen in his debut game where all three attempts were unsuccessful and only one successful dribble out of four attempts in the recent match.
Overall, Ayyoub Bouaddi shows great potential as a young midfielder and has already captured the attention of top European clubs. With further development and experience, he has the potential to become a prominent player in the future.
