With 41 appearances in all competitions for Rennes last season (not all starts), as the team reached the knockout stages of the Conference League, Adrien Truffert had time to impress.

The 20-year-old, who played both legs against Leicester City in the European competition, caught the eye of many clubs, with many now starting to come forward.

That’s the case of the aforementioned Foxes, who will have seen what the left-back has to offer first-hand, as well as West Ham United.

They join the likes of Everton, Hoffenheim and Ajax as teams keen on his services, with L’Equipe looking at the player’s situation.

Recently swapping agencies and moving to ICM Stellar Sports, Truffert could now be facing the first ‘turning point’ in his career.

It’s stated that while he’s ‘in his element at Rennes’, he wants to ensure he gets regular football and is ‘waiting for a talk with his club to sort out a more fixed hierarchy’ so that he can ‘develop fully’.

However, he’s also aware that ‘interest isn’t lacking’, with all the clubs previously mentioned, including Leicester and West Ham, keeping an eye on him.

Regarding the Foxes and the Hammers, it’s said both have ‘asked for information’, meaning they want to know how much a transfer would cost.

It’s worth pointing out that Brendan Rodgers never managed to fully settle on a left-back last season, giving a few players a go without ever choosing one for extended periods of time.

As for West Ham, Aaron Cresswell isn’t getting any younger and it was rather clear that David Moyes isn’t necessarily willing to trust Arthur Masuaku fully going forward.

Therefore, their interest in Truffert certainly makes a lot of sense.
