Arsenal have been scouting Youssouf Fofana for two years

Premier League heavyweights Arsenal have reportedly kept tabs on the progress of 25-year-old French midfielder Youssouf Fofana for two years.

According to a report by Graeme Bailey on HITC, Youssouf Fofana is the subject of interest from Arsenal. The Gunners are scouring the market for a midfielder heading into the summer transfer window. And they have closely monitored the progress of the 25-year-old AS Monaco midfielder for two years.

The rise and rise of Youssouf Fofana

Youssouf Fofana has been among the most underrated midfielders in Ligue 1 in the last few years. A graduate of the JA Drancy youth division, the Frenchman has risen in prominence since joining AS Monaco from RC Strasbourg in January 2020. His exploits have also helped establish a foothold in his national team.

The 25-year-old has turned out 17 times for France in the last two years. Meanwhile, the player made 35 appearances across all competitions this season, chipping in with four goals and four assists. Fofana’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe.

A move to the Premier League might be on the cards, with many English bigwigs closely monitoring his progress at AS Monaco. Meanwhile, the French international is a target for Arsenal, with the Gunners keeping tabs on him at the Ligue 1 club for nearly two years.

London calling?

Arsenal’s interest in Youssouf Fofana is understandable. The Gunners are combing the market for a midfielder heading into the summer transfer window due to the uncertainties surrounding the future of Thomas Partey. In addition, Mohamed Elneny will leave Arsenal as a free agent in the summer transfer window.

So, it behoves Arsenal to invest in a top-class midfielder, with Fofana emerging as a viable target. The report has claimed that the Gunners have kept tabs on the progress of the AS Monaco midfielder for two years. In addition, the North London giants are in contact with the French midfielder’s representatives.

So, a summer move to the Emirates might be on the cards for the 25-year-old AS Monaco midfielder. It will be interesting to see if Arsenal can beat the competition in the race to sign the Frenchman from the Ligue 1 club.
