A number of Premier League clubs are eyeing a move for Lorient defender Lamine Kone in the January transfer window, sources have told

The 26-year-old was a target for a number of clubs, including Sunderland and West Ham, during last summer’s transfer window and his suitors have continued to keep tabs on his progress.

The Ivory Coast international has impressed so far this season for Lorient and the player is thought to be keen on a move to the Premier League.

Kone’s representative, Mark McKay of Excel Foot, has confirmed several sides have expressed an interest in the defender as they weigh up a move for the player when the transfer window reopens next month.

“I am speaking to several clubs who are ready to make an offer for Lamine in January,” McKay told

“Lamine has been outstanding this season for Lorient and I believe he is made for the Premier League.

“He is big, strong and athletic and has all the tools to be a success in the Premier League.

“It has always been a dream for Lamine and a number of other French players to play in the Premier League and I feel he would be a great addition for any side in the Premier League.”
