Lens captain Seko Fofana recently made the decision to leave his club in France and join Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia. Fofana, who had been with Lens for several years, has been a key player and captain for the team.
He had a successful career at Lens, helping the club achieve promotion to Ligue 1 and establish themselves in the top division. Fofana’s departure from Lens came as a surprise to many, as he had recently signed a contract extension until 2025. However, the opportunity to join Al Nassr proved too tempting for Fofana to pass up.
The decision to join Al Nassr was likely influenced by the club’s recent success and the chance to play alongside top players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo Brozovic.
Al Nassr finished in second place in the Saudi Pro League and are looking to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season . Fofana’s move to Al Nassr is seen as a significant step in his career, as he will have the opportunity to compete in a highly competitive league and showcase his skills on a bigger stage. The presence of Ronaldo, one of the greatest footballers of all time, at Al Nassr may have also played a role in Fofana’s decision to join the club.
The details of Fofana’s transfer to Al Nassr were announced by the club, confirming that the Ivorian midfielder has signed a contract until 2026.
The transfer fee for Fofana’s move to Al Nassr is reported to be around €25 million. This significant transfer fee reflects Fofana’s value as a player and the high expectations that Al Nassr have for him. Fofana’s departure from Lens and his move to Al Nassr mark a new chapter in his career, as he seeks to make an impact in Saudi Arabian football and contribute to Al Nassr’s success in the coming seasons.
