L’Équipe report tonight that Ligue 1 champions PSG have entered into direct contact with RC Lens midfielder Seko Fofana about a possible summer transfer.
Luis Campos has decided that a deal for Fofana would bring the dynamism required in the box-to-box midfield areas. The 27-year-old is under contract until June 2024.
Talks between PSG & the player have not yet accelerated – Lens are seeking between €30m and €40m to sell a player who they signed from Udinese for €10m in 2020. The Italian side will receive 20% of any future transfer.
Newcastle and Arsenal have also made their interest known, but the player is still inclined to remain in France, according to his entourage, which is why the PSG project is really appealing to him.
Kylian Mbappé and his father, Wilfrid Mbappé, have personally also been positive about PSG pursuing Fofana.
