Boubakary Soumare drew the attention of scouts from all over Europe at the end of the 2018-19 season. The youngster enjoys moving the ball around fast and effectively.He doesn't have to make major passes in his role; instead, he restores the ball and passes it to a free teammate with pinpoint precision.

This is true even during severe transitional times, with his pass completion rate in Ligue 1 dropping only marginally, from 90% to 88 percent. Those transitional moments, especially if Soumare wins the ball in the middle third, frequently display his most distinguishing trait: dribbling and ball carrying.
