Journalist claims Milan are ‘strongly interested’ in RC Lens midfielder – competition from two clubs

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are one of the clubs strongly interested in signing midfielder Seko Fofana from RC Lens, according to a journalist.

The 26-year-old Ivory Coast international has been a mainstay for Lens this season making 30 appearances in Ligue 1 this term, functioning mainly as a defensive midfielder. According to journalist Sebastien Denis of FootMercato on Twitter, Milan and Atalanta are both ‘strongly interested’ in signing Fofana this summer, while Olympique Marseilla are also keen but have not made an offer yet nor is there any verbal agreement.

Lens are not looking to sell Fofana at the moment but the strong interest from the three aforementioned clubs could force their hand somewhat, especially if the player were to push to play for a bigger squad. His position and characteristics suggest he could be lined up as a potential replacement for Soualiho Meite, whose loan from Torino is set to expire soon.

    Very good player I watched him when he was at Udinese, I wish we sign him if the price is right.

      Amine Adli is exactly what ACM need to play in UCL next season and he will bring that spark, excitement that they need
      Hope they don’t buy 34 yr olds that see not much game time
