Valencia appear to have a genuine interest in signing Brest forward this summer.
The France international joined Brest from Bastia on a free transfer in August 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2020.
Pintor has played 5 times for Brest since signing from Bastia, creating one assist in that time.
The 18-year-old has long been touted as one of France’s most promising young talents.
Lenny Pintor has represented France at Under-16, Under-18 and Under-19 level, winning 17 caps and scoring four goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Valencia.
Marcelino is looking to shore up his attacking options and Brest’s Lenny Pintor happens to be a target.
The Valencia manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move this summer.
Lenny Pintor has the talent to play many roles in attack.
According to Football Espana (via Super Deporte), “Valencia are in ongoing negotiations to sign highly-rated France youth international Lenny Pintor from Brest. Super Deporte claim the attack-minded midfielder has been tracked by Los Che this summer and a deal is hoped to be closed this week. The 18-year-old has risen through the youth international ranks with his nation and has netted three goals in seven appearances for the Under-19 team. Of Martiniquais descent, Pintor only made his debut for the Ligue 2 side in December and is thought to be available for €2.5m.”

A move away from Brest will not be only the best move for Pintor, but also for the club.
If he turns out to be a star player like many expect, it could be one of the club’s smartest transfers.
It will be interesting to see whether Valencia will make their move during the summer transfer window.
