Antwerp chasing former Fulham target Fodé Ballo-Touré, but player prefers Bundesliga side

According to HLN, Antwerp have reached an agreement with Milan for the loan of Fodé Ballo-Touré. While Milan have accepted the deal, it appears that the Senegalese international is unsure about a move to the reigning Belgian champions. His preference is for a move to the Bundesliga and Werder Bremen, but the German side has yet to reach an agreement with Milan. According to the report, the Italian side want to move Ballo-Touré quickly. Antwerp are in need of another left-back after Gaston Avila joined Ajax. However, Ballo-Touré has already turned down Fulham this summer so there is not certainty that he will be joining Antwerp.

The 26-year-old joined Milan from Monaco on a free in the summer of 2021. However, he struggled to break into the first team and is set to leave Italy with just 26 appearances for the side. The left-back began his career in France with PSG, but did not make a first team appearance for the Parisians. Instead, he moved to Lille and played 47 games for the club. Monaco signed him in January 2019 and he made 74 appearances in the Principality. Ballo-Touré has made 13 appearances for Senegal and was part of the side that won the countries first ever AFCON at the 2021 tournament.
