Arsenal & Man Utd on alert as transfer target Youssouf Fofana reveals


The 25-year-old midfielder, who has been a key player for the Ligue 1 side, is now on the radar of several high-profile teams. Monaco could let him go for a cut-price of £20 million ($25m) as his contract is expiring in 2025.

As Fofana prepares for Euro 2024 with the French national team, he took the opportunity to discuss his future during a press conference.

"I have spoken about it with the hierarchy, it isn’t a secret," Fofana said. "We had exchanges and they agreed to accompany me in this new stage. If [a move] doesn’t happen, I still have a year left and I will be happy to stay. We were in agreement that we would accompany each other in this process in which everyone should be a winner, be it me or the club

The news of Fofana’s availability has put several top clubs on high alert. Arsenal, in particular, are keen to strengthen their midfield, especially with the possibility of Thomas Partey leaving. The Gunners are also eyeing Newcastle’s Bruno Guimaraes as a potential addition. United, on the other hand, are looking to fill the gap left by Sofyan Amrabat, whose loan from Fiorentina has expired. AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain are also monitoring the situation closely, aware of the opportunity to secure a talented player at a reasonable price.
