The 21 year old has burst into first-team action this season with Ligue 1 side Lorient – accumulating 20 appearances and four goals so far – and inevitably attracting the attention of top European sides, reportedly being courted by Paris Saint-Germain as well the English duo.

The Portugal international has expressed how flattered he is by the speculation surrounding his future yet he remains firmly focused on performing for Sylvain Ripoll’s side:

“It’s always nice to see rumours like that,” Guerreiro said.

“But I am in Paris in Ligue 1. It’s interesting when you hear things like that, but for now, there is no preference. If I can stay in France, for sure I will.”
