Newcastle United Make A Bid For Leicester City Defender

Newcastle United have allegedly made contact with the entourage of Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana and are expected to make an offer to the Premier League club in the near future.

Newcastle United have selected Wesley Fofana as a priority acquisition in the January transfer window, according to sources from French outlet RMC Sport. The club has already contacted the player’s representatives, according to the report. The new ownership of the Magpies intends to bring in some high-profile players and make an appealing offer to Leicester City for the defender, who is currently on the market.

The Saudi investment fund PIF has only been in charge of Newcastle United for a week. But the club has already been connected with a slew of high-profile names for the next transfer window. That is owing to their cash-rich ownership that has now taken over. The Magpies are likely to spend money in the transfer market in January to bolster their team, and Steve Bruce is expected to be fired at the end of the season.

The club has already been connected with a number of high-profile players, including Raheem Sterling, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Aaron Ramsey, among others. Additionally, numerous media sources have reported on additional players who have been linked to a move to the club.

As a result, the Magpies are likely to make an offer for the 20-year-old Leicester defender Wesley Fofana, who has been linked with a transfer to St James’ Park. According to the report, the club has already spoken with the player’s entourage and may be able to persuade them that a transfer would be in their best interests in the long run.

Since arriving at Leicester from Saint-Etienne in the summer of 2020, Fofana has proven to be a revelation under Brendan Rodgers, and many anticipated him to play a major part in the Foxes’ title defence. However, a severe injury suffered during pre-season sidelined him for the foreseeable future, although some sources suggest he may return to the field as early as January 2022.

Realistically, given the kind of injury Fofana sustained, he may be out for the rest of the season and just available for the next season. However, Newcastle’s pursuit of the Frenchman seems to be more serious than previously thought, although the transfer talks may not be easy in any event.

Wesly Fofana’s Future in Newcastle United?

Fofana has a long-term contract with Leicester that runs until 2025, and as previous transactions have shown, the Foxes will likely want a high transfer price in exchange for his services. However, persuading Rodgers’ side to sell may prove tough despite the fact that Newcastle is not likely to baulk at any asking amount.

Alternatively, Leicester City may give Fofana a new contract to keep him at the club for the foreseeable future, thus delaying Newcastle’s interest. In any case, the 20-year-old French defender has a long-term future at any club, as his performances last season showed tremendous potential.
