French football club PSG have been recently linked with a move for Lille’s star midfielder Renato Sanches. The 24-year-old Portuguese talent who played for Bayern Munich before is also on the radar of AC Milan. In fact, he has been followed by the Rossoneri for months.
Multiple reports insist that an agreement between the Serie A champions and the player is established. But, a deal with Lille is yet to be made, and with the entry of PSG as well as the renewal of Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara taking a little more extra time without even forgetting some recent internal problems in the board of directors of Lille, the transfer became complicated for the Italians.
Now, according to L’Equipe, The Ligue 1 giants, with their new director Luis Campos, have set their sights on former Udinese midfielder Seko Fofana who just had an impressive season with Lens.
In fact, sources at L’Equipe claim that the PSG club management have already initiated contacts with Lens for Seko Fofana.
This news in particular, if true, may be positive for the Rossoneri. Could it be that the president Nasser Al Khelaifi and his staff have chosen to change their midfield target and go for Fofana instead of Renato Sanches?
