Competition grows for Koffi Djidji

A new suitor for Koffi Djidji is popping up: the Torino defender, in high demand in England, appears to have also entered the sights of Inter Milan, looking for a low-cost graft to shore up the defensive department. Urbano Cairo has no intention of selling off the Ivorian, but his contract expiring in 2023 complicates matters.

Vagnati has been working for weeks to identify Djidji’s replacement. At the moment there are three profiles that the Granata management likes best: Pawel Bochniewicz, Oumar Gonzalez and Almamy Touré. Raised in the youth ranks of Reggina, Bochniewicz later moved to Udinese. In 2018 he returned home to Górnik Zabrze; in September 2020 he signed a three-year contract with Heerenveen. Gonzalez plays at Ajaccio, Touré, on the other hand, wears the Eintracht Frankfurt jersey.

After representing France’s under-21 selection, he decided to represent Mali in 2022. He boasts a French championship (Monaco 2016-2017) and a Europa League (Eintracht Frankfurt 2021-2022) in his palmares.
