Leeds: Whites interested in Seko Fofana

Leeds: Whites interested in Seko Fofana -Leeds United News

Leeds United are thought to be interested in signing RC Lens midfielder Seko Fofana.

The Lowdown: Fofana profiled

The 27-year-old, who Robin Bairner said is ‘known for his powerful runs’, is primarily a central midfielder but has played in a variety of positions throughout his career ranging from holding midfield to centre-forward.

Formerly on the books of Manchester City, Fofana is valued at a career-high €30m (£26.6m) by Transfermarkt and is the Lens captain. He is under contract until 2025 with the Ligue 1 high-fliers, but it looks as if a move could be on the cards this year.

The Latest: Leeds interested in Fofana

Media Foot shared a transfer update regarding Fofana on Tuesday night, claiming that a summer exit is a possibility.

The report says that Nice and AS Monaco are keen on the 27-year-old, while Leeds are also name-checked with an interest.

The Verdict: Forshaw replacement?

The Whites recently lost the services of Mateusz Klich, leaving Jesse Marsch with just one out-and-out central midfielder on the books in Adam Forshaw.

Forshaw has had some serious injury issues in recent years and is actually out of contract at the end of the season, so Fofana could be viewed as a replacement for the 31-year-old at Elland Road.

The Ivory Coast international appears to be at the peak of his powers, so Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta may see a summer swoop as a shrewd piece of business, provided that the Whites remain in the Premier League.
