Bayer Leverkusen’s star centre-back Edmond Tapsoba has broken his silence regarding his future at the club amidst swirling rumours linking him with a potential move to several top European teams, including Chelsea and Manchester United.

The 25-year-old Burkinabé defender enjoyed an outstanding season under the guidance of Xabi Alonso, making 46 appearances across all competitions, contributing three goals and one assist.

Tapsoba’s performances were instrumental in Leverkusen’s successful campaign, which saw them clinch the Bundesliga and the German Cup titles before a narrow defeat to Ademola Lookman’s Atalanta in the Europa League final.

Despite his contract running until June 2028, Tapsoba has become one of the most coveted defenders in the transfer market.

His impressive form has attracted interest not only from Manchester United and Chelsea but also from Arsenal, Tottenham, AC Milan, and Paris Saint-Germain.

Leverkusen’s management remains open to the idea of Tapsoba’s departure but is holding out for a substantial offer, reflecting the defender’s high market value and the remaining duration of his contract.

In a recent interview with Sport News Africa, Tapsoba addressed the speculation surrounding his future: “Currently, I am a Bayer Leverkusen player, and I hope to start the next season soon.”

His statement suggests a desire to maintain focus on his current club while leaving the door open for potential developments.

As the transfer window progresses, the future of Edmond Tapsoba remains a key topic of interest.

With several European giants vying for his signature, the coming weeks could see significant moves that might reshape the defensive line-ups of some of the continent’s most prestigious clubs.

For now, Tapsoba remains a pivotal figure at Bayer Leverkusen, poised to continue his development under Alonso’s tutelage unless a formidable offer lures him away.
