Stade Rennais and Montpellier in the fight for Kelvin Amian


By: Manu Tournoux

It’s a name that we have somewhat forgotten in France since his departure for Serie A in 2021. However, Kelvin Amian, whose value is estimated at €2 million, could well make his comeback this winter in Ligue 1 Trained at TFC, this pure pitch player capable of playing both as a right back and as a central defender, trained at TFC before making his first start at 18 with Toulouse against OM at Orange Vélodrome one evening in August 2016.

What followed were 5 full seasons and numerous selections for the French team, from the U17s to the Espoirs, which notably earned him a place in the 40 for the 2018 Golben Boy trophy. After more than 150 professional matches and 5 goals, the native of the Pink City had decided to leave the cocoon to try his luck in Italy with La Spezia. In Italy, he gained experience and enriched his technical background. After two seasons in Serie A, Amian cannot prevent his team from going down to Serie B.

Already 200 professional matches played at just 25 years old

Very close to joining Fiorentina in the final stages of the summer transfer window before the Viola failed him, he then spent six months in the antechamber of the Italian elite. Today, the former Toulouse player, capable of playing in all positions (on the right, in the center, on the right in a three-way defense or even on the left to help out), wishes to return to France. This is good, Kelvin Amian, who was unanimous in the TFC locker room as much for his state of mind as for his love of the Toulouse club, is followed by two elite clubs and not the least since Stade Rennais and Montpellier have their sights set on the Spezia defender according to our information.

The Breton club, which is looking for elements of experience to strengthen a very young defense, is interested in this defender who has more than 200 professional matches in France and Italy. He also has the advantage of playing both in the center and on the right flank, something to delight Rennes. Qualities which also appeal to the MHSC to densify a defense that has been more than porous since the start of the season (20 goals conceded in 14 matches). To be continued.
