The ongoing saga about the future of Sven Botman took another interesting turn on Sunday night.
According to Get French football, Lille has reached an agreement to sell the defender to a major anonymous European club for between 40 and 45 million euros this summer.
However, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, there is still no agreement.
Sven Botman will undoubtedly be a key player in the summer transfer market, but there is still no agreement with any English club as of today. “Fake news,” says Agent Bruinenberg. Tottenham and Liverpool were interested in January, but he was never close to leaving Lille. 🔴

Botman’s performances for Lille have linked him to a big money move this summer.
Liverpool have been strongly linked to the defender, with many experts saying that he would be the ideal partner for Virgil van Dijk.
However, the club’s reluctance to spend cash of late suggests that they are unlikely to seek a deal for Botman.
Some Manchester United fans they were happy to learn that Botman might be on the move this summer, saying he would make a good partner for Harry Maguire.
While Botman is a good defender, his lack of pace would be a major cause for concern if he were paired with the former Leicester City star.
If the Dutch defender heads to the Premier League this summer, Chelsea is probably his most likely destination.
The Blues are in the defensive reinforcement market and have the financial clout to pay the Lille sale price.
