According to a report by Football Insider, Youssouf Fofana is the subject of interest from Tottenham Hotspur. The North London giants have registered their interest in the AS Monaco midfielder. However, they are behind AC Milan in the race to secure the French midfielder’s services, with the Rossoneri advancing the talks to sign him.

The rise of Youssouf Fofana at AS Monaco

Youssouf Fofana has been one of the best midfielders in Ligue 1 since joining AS Monaco from RC Strasbourg in January 2020. The 25-year-old has gone from strength to strength in the last four and a half years, with his progress helping him break into his national side in 2022.

The Frenchman travelled with Les Bleus to Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and is also part of the UEFA Euro 2024 group. Fofana has turned out 175 times thus far for AS Monaco, chipping in with seven goals and 15 assists. Meanwhile, the player’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe.

Recent reports have linked the French international with many Premier League bigwigs, including Arsenal and Manchester United. The AS Monaco midfielder is also a target for Tottenham Hotspur, with the North London giants registering their interest in him. However, they are behind AC Milan in the battle, with the Rossoneri advancing the talks to sign him.

Premier League move in the pipeline?

Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in Youssouf Fofana is understandable. The North London giants are scouring the market for a versatile midfielder heading into the summer transfer window amid uncertainties surrounding the futures of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Giovani Lo Celso.

Fofana has thus emerged as a viable target for Tottenham. The North London giants have registered their interest in the 25-year-old French international. However, they are waiting in the background to see if his move to AC Milan collapses, in which case they will launch the offensive to secure his services.

It will be interesting to see how the talks between AC Milan and AS Monaco over a deal for the Frenchman. If a move does not see the light of day, Tottenham might pounce and prise Fofana away from AS Monaco in the summer transfer window.
