Tottenham plot move to sign Monaco’s Youssouf Fofana

Tottenham Hotspur are in the mix to sign AS Monaco midfielder Youssouf Fofana as Ange Postecoglou looks to reshape his midfield for the upcoming season, according to Tuttojuve.

The 25-year-old midfield powerhouse has been a pivotal figure for Monaco, racking up 175 appearances with seven goals and 15 assists.

His all-action displays have attracted interest from several European giants, with Juventus, AC Milan, Arsenal and Manchester United keeping tabs on the Frenchman.

Tottenham are looking to overhaul their midfield ahead of next season. Yves Bissouma impressed at the beginning of last season but suffered a massive drop-off in the second half.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Giovani Lo Celso’s futures at the club remain uncertain, with both players linked with moves away.

Rodrigo Bentancur and Pape Matar Sarr are the only ones locked in to remain a part of Postecoglou’s side next season.

Fofana’s ability to win tackles, distribute effectively, and contribute in the final third would make him a valuable addition to the North London club.

Postecoglou wants a steely presence in central midfield, and Fofana would provide the defensive solidity he craves.

However, Tottenham face stiff competition for Fofana’s signature. With several European heavyweights circling, Spurs must act swiftly to secure their midfield target.

Milan are particularly keen on Fofana’s signature. They have lacked a ball-winning presence in the centre for years, and the club’s hierarchy looks out to plug that hole this summer.

Juventus have also been monitoring his situation, but it is unclear if they will come for the France international. They are close to sealing a deal for OGC Nice star Khephren Thuram.

Arsenal are preparing to let Thomas Partey go this summer and will be in the market for a replacement. The Monegasque midfielder fits the bill.

Manchester United are set to lose Casemiro after a poor 2023/24 campaign and could also turn to Fofana, who will likely cost around £25 million.
