Newcastle United, Wolves and Fulham have joined elite Premier League sides in the race for Le Havre defender sensation Arouna Sangante, sources have told Football Insider.
Football Insider revealed on Tuesday (21 November) that Man United, Man City and Chelsea have set their sights on signing the 21-year-old – who is one of the hottest properties in French football.
Newcastle, Fulham and Wolves have also sent scouts to cast an eye over Sangante ahead of a potential move to England in 2024.
It is believed European giants AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund are also keen to sign him after his commanding performances in Ligue 1.
Le Havre are aware of the growing interest in Sangante and club owner Vincent Volpe has given an exclusive mandate to FIFA agent Willie McKay to sell the player in the January transfer window.
A well-placed source has told Football Insider that the Senegal-born defender is valued at around £20million by the Normandy club.
Sangante has made ten top-flight appearances this term, helping his side keep five clean sheets – including in draws against Monaco, Lens and Lyon.
He is the captain at Le Havre after breaking through as a teenager in the 2021-22 campaign.
The centre-back is under contract until June 2026 after penning his last contract extension in July, weeks after helping the club back to Ligue 1.
