Fulham defender Maxime Le Marchand insists he is yet to talk to Lens about a move, but could be tempted into joining the French side.

Le Marchand has been with Fulham since 2018 when he joined in a £3.6m deal from French side Nice, having spent his entire career in France.

He proved to be a regular for Fulham last season, making 29 appearances in all competitions as they were relegated from the Premier League.

This year has been an entirely different story, with him managing just nine appearances and 269 minutes of football in total as injuries have kept him out for large periods of the campaign.

That, coupled with the fact his contract expires in two years, has fuelled rumours that he could leave Craven Cottage in the summer, with Lens thought to be keen.

Le Marchand has now been asked about those rumours and says he is not entirely opposed to the idea.

“I saw it on social media,” he told Onze Mondial.

“Maybe there might be some interest, but there are no real discussions yet because I think Fulham are waiting to finish the Championship, and we’ll see afterwards.

“I could, of course (be seduced). There are a lot of things to consider. You would have to talk with the coach, the sports director, know the philosophy, what they want to do…

“A lot of things come into play. But first of all, Lens is still a big name in the French league, that’s for sure.”
