In search of a new midfielder, Leicester City finally managed to get their hands on Boubakary Soumare from LOSC. The deal would be agreed between all parties.
LOSC : Boubakary Soumare will sign for Leicester !
Boubakary Soumare at Leicester City is only a matter of time. As announced for several weeks, the midfielder should join the current fifth of the Premier League during the next summer mercato. Indeed, Fabrizio Romano, mercato specialist for Sky Sports and The Guardian, confirms this Thursday the information communicated earlier in the English press.
The journalist says that the Foxes have completed the signing of Boubakary Soumare. After lengthy negotiations with the leaders of LOSC, the various parties have agreed to his transfer this summer. Still according to the journalist, the amount of this transfer would amount to 25 million euros, including bonuses. The almost completed transfer of Boubakary Soumare represents a very good sale for the leader of Ligue 1, who recruited him for free 4 years ago from PSG.
Boubakary Soumare’s statistics
Trained at Paris Saint-Germain, the midfielder had joined LOSC in 2017. He played this season 42 games in all competitions. His statistical record also includes two assists, including one in the Europa League. A year ago, he was close to leaving LOSC to join Newcastle, but the financial demands of the Dogues had prompted the Magpies to abandon the track. The 22-year-old defensive midfielder, who had a good season in Ligue 1, may become French champion with Lille before moving to the Premier League next season.
