“I thought for a long time, I imagine myself here and not elsewhere. I saw myself in the project. Even when I tried to explain my reasoning, I was told I was crazy. “ This is what Seko Fofana said when he arrived at RC Lens in the summer of 2020 for the modest sum of € 10 million. It must be said that the former great hope of Manchester City comes from several interesting seasons in Serie A on the side of Udinese. A carefully considered choice that pays today, both for the player and for the current runner-up of PSG in the L1 ranking.
Considered one of the best midfielders in Ligue 1, crowned best player in the championship in September, the spearhead of the Artesian club, under contract until June 2024, surfing on extraordinary statistics. Omnipresent in the field (he is also the fourth player who runs the most in L1 with 143.5 kilometers covered after 13 days), scorer three times in August, Fofana is one of the most influential players of RC Lens.

Seko Fofana very attached to RC Lens
So, inevitably, the odds of the 26-year-old Ivorian international continue to increase. Tracked by OM last summer, the former Udinese had finally stayed in Artois. This should be the case again this winter, despite a few clubs still following the player. The latter being very attached to his club and his sporting project.
According to our information, Newcastle, OM, AC Milan, Atalanta and some English clubs continue to observe his performances. Not enough to shake RC Lens, which does not need cash and should politely refuse winter offers except for a huge check. Something to reassure Lensois supporters who have made the native of Paris one of their favorites with Jonathan Clauss.
