The 44-times-capped Malian international has been with Stade Rennes since the beginning of the 2017/18 campaign. His estimated market worth remains at a career high after a pair of good seasons for the Ligue 1 outfit. The former Paris FC and Stade Reims player has made 31 appearances for Rennes this season across all competitions, scoring one goal and contributing two assists.
Leverkusen will likely continue to be on the market for additional assistance on the right-hand-side ahead of the coming year, looking for as many trained fullbacks and wingbacks as possible should - as is expected - Jeremie Frimpong depart the club. Bayer have already signed Brazilian right-back "Arthur" as a potential Frimpong replacement.
