Although it is a name that will mean nothing even to the most ardent football fanatics in the country. But Moumini is no slouch.

According to the data of the renowned website Transfermarkt, the defender, who is only 167 centimeters tall, is already seasoned in international matches. He made his debut for the national team last June. He decorated the premiere with a goal, and Benin thus drew 1:1 with Senegal in the qualification match for the African Cup of Nations. Benin did not qualify for the championship, but Moumini has not dropped out of selection since then. So far, he has played six games in his country’s jersey, five of them in the starting lineup.

The fast-footed teenager caught the attention of scouts from Europe thanks to his performances in the national team. He was also eyed by RC Lens, the sixth team in the French top flight. The Benin media, however, believe that Moumini’s move to the west of Bohemia is complete. According to them, he should undergo a medical examination in the coming days and sign a four-year contract, valid from the summer.

“Moumini will have her first foreign engagement. The Benin defender will be signed by the Czech giant FC Viktoria Plzeň,” the 229foot server confidently asserts.

The skilful full-back, who prefers to play on the right side of the defense, is thus a hot candidate to expand Pilsen’s legion of talents from abroad. The 22-year-old stopper from Liberia Sampson Dweh has been in the squad of the quarter-finalists of the current edition of the Conference League since the summer. Idjessi Metsoko, a Togolese of the same age, and Cheick Souaré, a Frenchman a year younger, came in the winter. We cannot forget the Nigerian gunner Rafia Durosinmi, who is currently recovering from an injured knee.

In addition, Moumini can meet a compatriot in the west of Bohemia. After the end of the current season, Benin stopper Mohamed Tijani, who is visiting Yverdon in Switzerland, could return to Pilsen for training.

The new signing would not be the only young foreigner in the team, even if he first headed to the third division B-team. Two Nigerians have been playing for Victoria’s reserve since the beginning of the spring season, 19-year-old defender Mitchell Ejedegba and forward James Bello, a year younger. The trio of foreign reinforcements is completed by twenty-year-old Swiss midfielder Burak Alili.
