According to reports, Chelsea is prepared to try to buy Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana.
Todd Boehly, the interim sporting director and co-owner of the Blues, is reportedly ready to make an offer for the 21-year-old Premier League sensation.
According to the source, Leicester may be willing to offload certain players this summer due to financial constraints, but the brilliant center-back remains under contract at the King Power Stadium till 2027.
Fofana is a fantastic young center-half who cost the Foxes £30 million a few years ago.
In the last year, Marina Granovskaia, the Blues director in charge of transfers, has been connected to him, but it appears Boehly, her replacement, is just as interested.
an effort by Chelsea to sign Fofana
Fofana made a great comeback from a long-term injury last season, earning Brendan Rodgers’ praise as manager of Leicester, who called him “incredible.”
He is a gifted young central defender who is at home in either a back four or a back three, which should be a huge checkmark for Chelsea. Frank Lebouef, incidentally, recently pushed the Blues to attempt to recruit the Leicester star.
He has so many fantastic qualities as a defender that there is no question that he has a very high ceiling for his career. For instance, he possesses outstanding physicality and pace in addition to leadership and calm.
The excellent goal at 100%
Along with the already accomplished acquisitions of Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly, it would be even more great business for Chelsea if they were able to secure a deal for Fofana.
The cost to acquire the Leicester star, however, is unknown based on the rumours.
The Stamford Bridge crowd ought to be excited about a transfer like this.
