Lens look to tie down Milan, Napoli and Premier League target Kevin Danso

Foot Mercato report that RC Lens defender Kevin Danso is attracting significant interest across Europe this summer after a superb season for the Ligue 1 runners-up.

AC Milan, Napoli, and Fiorentina have all expressed interest in the 24-year-old centre-back, as have unnamed Premier League sides. However, Lens are edging closer to agreeing a new contract with their defensive lynchpin as they head into the Champions League group stages next season.

Although nothing is completed as yet, the French club is positive about finding a deal to ward off the advances of various suitors, as the Austrian international feels good in Lens and already has a contract that runs until 2026.

Playing at the centre of a three-man backline, Ligue 1’s best this season – conceding just 29 goals, ten fewer than any other side – Danso has arguably been Ligue 1’s standout player in 2023, having arrived from Augsburg in 2021 for just £5m.
