Monaco target RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara

Monaco are interested in a deal for RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara, according to Foot Mercato.

The principality club’s sporting director, Paul Mitchell, knows Haidara well from his time at Leipzig.

And with an ambitious project led by new coach Niko Kovac, Monaco are ‘very interested’ in Haidara.

The 22-year-old Mali international is an important squad player at Leipzig, but not yet a regular starter.

In the 2019-20 season, Haidara started only seven of his 25 appearances in the Bundesliga and Champions League.

It remains to be seen if Monaco can pull off a deal for Haidara, who is under contract until 2023 and would be quite expensive.

However, Monaco are thinking big and also have their eyes on Serbian duo Luka Jovic and Filip Kostic.

Haidara, who has been compared to Naby Keita, joined Leipzig from sister club Red Bull Salzburg for €19m in December 2018.
