Wesley Fofana: Chelsea turn to £70m Leicester ace after Jules Kounde blow

Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana is currently being monitored by Chelsea as Thomas Tuchel desperately continues to seek defensive reinforcements amid Jules Kounde doubts

Fofana has five years remaining on his current contract with the Foxes but has oftentimes been linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium.

Chelsea have already snapped up the colossal Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli, but Blues coach Thomas Tuchel, continues to seek more defensive signings following Rudiger and Christensen’s exits this summer.

So far in the transfer window, Chelsea have seemingly failed in their attempts to bring in Manchester City’s Nathan Ake and Sevilla’s Jules Kounde.

Chelsea are now weighing up a move for Wesley Fofana this summer as per Sky Sports.

The 21-year-old French center-back will reportedly command a fee of around £70m and the Blues seem desperate to make signings although, those figures might be a stumbling block.

However, Spanish club Barcelona, moved to hijack the move – leaving Thomas Tuchel to look elsewehere for an alternative.

Chelsea have found it difficult to convince players to make a switch to the Bridge this summer in the post-Abramovich era.

The Blues have seen deals for former Leeds winger Raphinha hijacked by Barcelona and now look set to lose their long-term target Kounde to the Catalans once more, having seen Robert Lewandowski seal a switch to Barca as well as their former defender Andreas Christensen this summer.
