Spurs vie for Youssouf Fofana amidst high transfer market demand

Tottenham Hotspur FC have been linked with a move for Monaco’s wantaway midfielder Youssouf Fofana as they seek to strengthen their midfield options ahead of the new season.

There is a high demand to land Youssouf Fofana this summer, with a plethora of clubs interested in landing the Frenchman’s services, per Corriere Torino via Sport Witness, as the London duo of Spurs and West Ham join the race for the 25-year-old. He could be one of the bargains of this summer window, as the midfield powerhouse is available for €20–30 million as he enters the final year of his contract at Louis II Stadium.

Can Spurs outmuscle rivals for Fofana’s signature?

The 25-year-old is busy with international duties at the time of writing as he helps France to their EURO 2024 bow. This will provide an opportunity for interested parties to closely observe his performances on the international stage. While he does not start for the Les Blues, he was one of the first substitutes that Didier Deschamps called upon in their first-round win over Austria. Should they gain three points against the Netherlands on Saturday, Youssouf Fofana would be among the players to have a shout to start in the final round of group stages.

Tottenham need to bring in ceiling-raisers in their midfield. Moreover, considering the inconsistent performances of Yves Bissouma, the Lilywhites could land a player who can not only give the former Brighton man a run for his money but also solidify the Spurs midfield with consistent performances throughout the season.
