Rewarded this season by the Marc-Vivien Foé RFI-France 24 prize which rewards the best African player playing in Ligue 1, Seko Fofana should be very coveted during the next summer transfer window.
RC Lens midfielder Seko Fofana is clearly no stranger to the great Sang et Or season in the elite of French football. Seventh in Ligue 1 before the final day scheduled against AS Monaco at the Bollaert stadium next weekend, the northern club can still dream of European qualification for the 2022-23 season. The Ivorian midfielder is also part of the standard team for the 2021-2022 season alongside his teammate Jonathan Clauss. Author of 8 goals and an assist this season in the league, Fofana has become in less than two years one of the darlings of the Lensois public. Beyond the statistics, his influence in the game and his work in recovery are indisputable and some clubs are ready to take action to welcome him this summer.
In the Premier League, Tottenham, Newcastle, Leicester and Aston Villa are closely following this file and seem ready to make an offer in the coming weeks. In Italy, the midfielder has retained a good rating. The former Udinese player would indeed be on the shelves of AC Milan according to the Italian press. In Ligue 1, Olympique de Marseille would also have inquired in recent weeks with the player’s entourage to find out his salary expectations. RC Lens should not study offers below 20 million euros and the competition could increase the note.
While waiting to learn more about his future, the main interested party hopes to win a European place with the Blood and Gold. Monaco? It will be a final. Last year they took Europe away from us. I hope that this season, we will deprive them of Europe. It is also to please all our supporters, to this club which has suffered for 10 years.he blurted out.
