Samed is Lensois! The Ghanaian midfielder from Clermont changes teams and joins Racing until 2027. At 22, he takes over from Seko Fofana in the midfield, more than ever at the start.
5 million euros. This is the price that Salis Abdul Samed will have cost to become Lensois. Clermont revelationhe was able to score a goal this season and played a total of 31 games in Ligue 1. Cornerstone of the CF63 midfield, he had already been approached by the RCL a few years ago, as Arnaud Pouille, the general manager, points out: “I see in the test he had passed with us in 2019 a wink of fate. Beyond his qualities as a footballer, Salis relies on a communicative joie de vivre that fits perfectly with the spirit of our professional locker room.”
Also on the club’s official website, Arnaud Pouille praises Samed based on his quality training and the promises he promises: “The arrival of Salis is a great satisfaction. This recruitment is a continuation of the signing of high-potential players that Racing is targeting. Salis is a complete midfielder, whose physical skills and technical qualities are highly developed for his age. His training at the Jean-Marc Guillou Academy in Ivory Coast allowed him to acquire a solid background and his years in Clermont were beneficial in his quest for regularity.
And finally, the sports director Florent Ghisolfi establishes the game profile of the new recruit, which can be synthesized as a real Swiss army knife: “Salis was our priority at the post. He is a player who has a high volume of play and running, and a lot of intensity. Salis is a complete midfielder, influential in both defensive and offensive aspects, but whose development potential remains significant.

A recruit with great potential. Samed will have the heavy responsibility of replacing Fofana. If he has the skills, he will have to prove that he is the right man for the job and that the 5 million euros invested in him have been wisely placed…
