Linked a few times with an exit from King Power Stadium, Fousseni Diabaté is currently in limbo about his future.
According to L’Equipe on Tuesday, the 23-year-old could end up going to Amiens in Ligue 1 for the season, but both Leicester and the French side are ‘waiting’ to see if the transfer is validated by the LFP (the French league board).
The rushed move for the Mali international came after the news Saman Ghoddos would be suspended for the next four months because of a failed transfer to Huesca, and, feeling a bit light up front, a loan was offered for Diabaté.
L’Equipe say the player ‘should arrive on loan’, and there’s hope he can replicate a semblance of the form he showed at Sivasspor last season, where he spent the second half of the campaign.
Diabaté swapped Leicester for Turkey to get some game time and bagged two goals and three assists in 17 appearances in all competitions.
In the past, he has played for Reims, Guingamp and AC Ajaccio, so settling in France shouldn’t be too problematic if the move goes through.
