Fofana’s Leicester City stint

Wesley Fofana made the switch to Leicester City during the 2020 summer transfer window.

The central defender arrived from Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne. And, despite remaining just 20 years of age, Leicester are believed to have paid a fee which could eventually rise to £30m for the youngster.

In spite of his limited experience at the top level, Fofana has already been able to establish himself as a key figure for the Foxes.

The France under-21 international has notched 28 Premier League appearances to date, as well as six in the Europa League under Brendan Rodgers.

All of this has come with the Marseille-born star boasting just two real years of top-flight experience.

Fofana speaks on dream move

Unfortunately for both Leicester and the player, however, Fofana would suffer a horrific injury in pre-season, during a meeting with Villarreal.

The defender was stretchered from the game, and is expected to be out until 2022 with a medial ligament injury.

Whilst sidelined, Fofana has been speaking to RMC Sport, and this weekend dropped a clear-as-day hint over his dream transfer.

Unsurprisingly, the stopper, who was born in Marseille, has confirmed that he one day hopes to line out for OM, back in the French top-flight:

“OM will always be a dream.

“I’m not sure what will happen in my career; I don’t know, I can’t know.

“But it will always be a dream because it’s my city. It’s my club, the one I supported as a kid, and I still support.

“When I watch OM matches, I’m like a fan, I shout, I sing, that’s how it is, it’s my club. But between what I want and what I could do, I can’t know, so we’ll see.”
