Bilel Ifa is being tracked by Racing Club de Lens, according to Tunisian television station Hannibal TV. The news was revealed during a report on Club Africain’s hard fought 3-2 win over Stade Tunisien in which Ifa assisted on one of the goals.
The right back is only 19 years old but is already
one of the Biancorosso’s most talented players and consistent contributors.
He played an important role in helping the team win the Tunisian league title
last year and has continued to improve during the current campaign despite
often having to play out of position on the left side of defence.
His maturity, sense of positioning, and accurate
crosses prompted national team coach Humberto Coelho to make him a part of the
Carthage Eagles World Cup qualifying squad. The former U17 international player
impressed during his first outing with the team on November 19 versus
Ghana in Accra.
When questioned about the interest from foreign
clubs after his latest outing with his current club, Ifa said that he was not
overly concerned about the issue given that his focus is on helping Club
Africain repeat as champions. The Tunis based side is one point away from
league leading Esperance Sportive de Tunis with one game left to play.
