Fofana on Priority Call as Juve Scout Midfield Reinforcements

The absences of Nicolo Fagioli and Paul Pogba from the Juventus squad have undoubtedly taken their toll, with the two central midfielders leaving an enormous hole in midfield. A January transfer operation now seems almost like an obligation for the Bianconeri, and Cristiano Giuntoli has taken concrete steps to shortlist Youssouf Fofana as the club’s main target.

Several targets have been taken into consideration by the Bianconeri, including Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Habib Diarra, Manu Kone, and Khephren Thuram. However, the AS Monaco midfielder has reportedly taken pole position, as per RMC Sport.

With a contract expiring in the summer of 2025, Fofana is a player in demand, with Paris Saint-German and even Manchester United keenly keeping tabs on proceedings. Fofana, who has also seen game time with the French national team, will be entering his final contractual year at the end of the current season, and Monaco are expectedly ready to cash in on him.

As per Transfermarkt, he possesses a market value of €25M, but the French outfit could demand well over €30M for his services.

Our Take on Juventus Eyeing Fofana

The 24-year-old could serve as an asset in Juventus’ transfer operations, as he continues to make a name for himself and rise among the ranks. Having rejected advances from Fulham and Nottingham Forest, Fofana will find it hard to say no to the Bianconeri.
