Report: Tottenham positioned as favourites in pursuit of 25-year-old midfielder

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are eager to reinforce their midfield during this transfer window.

Spurs have identified several potential targets, with AS Monaco’s Youssouf Fofana being the latest.

According to Tutto Juve, the Lilywhites are leading the race to sign the French international, willing to spend €30 million to bring him to North London.

The report claims that Spurs are now favourites to sign him.

This move positions Tottenham ahead of other interested clubs, including Juventus, Arsenal, and Manchester United.

The 25-year-old midfielder is in the final year of his contract with Monaco, which expires in June of the following year.

He joined the French club from Strasbourg in January 2020 for €15 million and has since become a crucial player for the team.

Last season, he made 35 appearances across all competitions, playing around 3000 minutes, and contributed four goals and four assists.

The defensive midfielder’s performances earned him a spot in Didier Deschamps’ France squad for the ongoing Euro 2024, where he has featured as a substitute in two games so far.

Tottenham’s pursuit of Fofana is part of their strategy to strengthen their midfield ahead of the new season.

Adding Fofana to the squad would provide much-needed depth and defensive solidity for Ange Postecoglou’s team.

Fofana is known for his physical strength, stamina, and pressing abilities, typically as a box-to-box midfielder.

With the expected departure of Danish midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer, Fofana would be a fitting replacement.

The Paris-born player’s current market value aligns with Tottenham’s reported offer, making him a viable and strategic addition to Spurs’ roster.
