The 19-year-old Saint-Étienne centre-back had a fine season in France, attracting the interest of various European clubs, with Milan included in the running. Media outlets both in France and Italy have linked the player with the Rossoneri for some time now.

However, the young defender spoke in an exclusive interview and expressed an evident preference of playing for Leicester, or in the Premier League in general, over any other option.

“I would be crazy to say no to Leicester. This contract could change my life. I need to protect my family by keeping them safe. The financial and sporting aspects have aligned, I am forced to say yes,” Fofana said.

 

English clubs including Arsenal, Everton, Manchester City, Manchester United and Wolves have been mentioned as also being interested in the defender but Milan are believed to be the keenest to snap up the 22-year-old.

It is said that the Serie A side would prefer to sign a centre-half on a free transfer but, with the club’s defence in dire need of reinforcements, they are seriously considering making a move for Ajer

The Norwegian’s agent revealed back in March that the player wanted to leave Celtic Park and Todofichajes now report that his departure from Glasgow is “imminent.”

It is important to point out that this Spanish source is notoriously unreliable so it is best to take this story with a large pinch of salt.

It has been reported that Celtic manager Neil Lennon held further talks with Ajeti’s agent on Thursday night, and that has convinced the player to move to the Glasgow giants.

A number of Premier League clubs and teams in Europe are interested in the Switzerland international striker this summer as well, according to the report, with Sky Sports having claimed earlier this month that West Brom – who have won automatic promotion from the Championship – want to sign the 23-year-old.

Sky Sports have claimed that if talks continue to progress, then a season-long loan deal could be finalised by early next week, with the Hoops having the option to make it permanent in the summer of 2021 for £5 million.
