FOOTBALL – LOSC Mercato : 30 M€, Sven Botman towards the Premier League ?
Under contract until June 2025 with LOSC, Sven Botman could well pack his bags this summer. The Dutch defender is likely to rebound in the Premier League, where several big clubs are already active to welcome him.

It is time to leave LOSC. The Lille club has already lost Mike Maignan or Boubakary Soumare this summer and it may not be over yet. Besides Renato Sanches, Sven Botman remains on the list of possible departures. The defender is coming off a great season with the Dogues and his solid performances in Ligue 1 are attracting interest from several European clubs.
Sven Botman has been interested in Italy, where Atalanta Bergamo would like to attract him. But the teammate of Jose Fonte could finally take another destination. And for good reason, several Premier League clubs are active to get his signature. Sky Sports reveals that the two Manchester clubs, very strong financially, would like to recruit him during this summer mercato.
Tottenham would also be on his trail. Spurs want to strengthen their defender and would choose the Lille man. While West Ham, Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Norwich have been following him for a long time and would like to use the transfer window to recruit him. These British interests do not necessarily displease LOSC, in search of cash. But to dislodge Sven Botman from Lille, the interested clubs will have to pull out all the stops.
A price already fixed for Sven Botman
Still according to the source, the Lille leaders would demand no less than €30 million to let their defender go. It remains to be seen who will match this amount. Remember that Sven Botman joined LOSC from Ajax Amsterdam and has quickly established himself in the Lille squad. Last season, he played 37 games in Ligue 1. French champion with the Dogues, he could go elsewhere this summer.
