Newcastle United is showing interest in acquiring the services of Monaco midfielder Fofana. There are many other Premier League clubs, which are also keen on signing him. Magpies are looking to bolster their midfield options this summer.

The 24-year-old has established himself as a vital player for Monaco, particularly excelling in a defensive midfield role. Fofana started 35 Ligue 1 matches last season and made appearances for France at the 2022 World Cup.


As his contract with Monaco expires next summer, the club may opt to sell him this summer. Newcastle, along with Arsenal and West Ham, has entered the race to sign Fofana.

Potential Impact of Fofana on Newcastle

Addition of Fofana in the Newcastle squad would be a smart move. Particularly, the team and the manager Eddie Howe prepare to face the challenges of Champions League football.

The Frenchman’s defensive expertise, would provide balance to Newcastle’s midfield alongside Sandro Tonali and Bruno Guimaraes. Furthermore, Fofana’s age suggests that his best years are still ahead of him. This makes him an enticing prospect for the Magpies. Fofana recorded an average of 2.3 tackles per game in both Ligue 1 and the Europa League last season.

As Newcastle aims to compete in multiple competitions, regular rotation is crucial, and Fofana could potentially become a key starter due to his natural defensive qualities. Football talent scout Jacek Kulig has praised Fofana, suggesting that his arrival would enhance the balance of Newcastle’s midfield.

Newcastle fans are looking forward to the signing of young midfielders as they try to finish in the Champions league places yet again this seaon and also to win some silverware. With a young manager in Eddie Howe, backing of good ownership, and the passionate fans, Newcastle are looking like they are back again on the top of English football again and wish to continue to do the same again in years to come.
