In search of new reinforcements during this summer transfer window, Paris Saint-Germain continues to advance its pawns in the Seko Fofana file.
Nasser Al-Khelaïfi announced it, PSG will take a completely different direction after a difficult 2021-2022 financial year. Finished the recruitment of stars at gold prices, place now to the players of duty who will be ready to wet the jersey to bring Paris to the top of European football. And who better than Seko Fofana to represent this new project led by Luis Campos? Nobody… Author of a great season with Lens, where he notably scored 8 goals in 38 L1 games, the midfielder impressed everyone with his power and volume of play in the middle of Racing. Precious in recovering the ball and building the game, Fofana would be a great recruit to densify the midfield of the club in the French capital. And that, Campos understood it well. It is therefore for this reason that the new sports adviser of Nasser Al-Khelaïfi began to discuss with the leaders of the RCL about a possible transfer of the Ivorian.
A transfer of 40 ME for Seko Fofana?

According to L’Equipe, the negotiations have not yet led to the formulation of a first concrete offer. But it won’t be long, knowing that the 27-year-old is one of the summer priorities, along with Vitinha, the Porto midfielder. But if PSG wants to complete this file, Campos will still have to pass the second, since the former Manchester City player is also targeted by Newcastle and Arsenal. Wanting to stay in France, especially if the PSG opportunity were to come his way, Fofana could be transferred between 30 and 40 ME, after being bought by Lens from Udinese for 10 ME in 2020. In any case, to oil the cogs of the discussions, PSG can count on… Kylian Mbappé, who particularly appreciates the profile of the captain of Lens. Enough to tip the scales on the right side at a time when negotiations will intensify between the three parties.
