Leicester City defender is eager to move to Chelsea.
That’s according to a recent report from the Mirror, who claims the talented French centre-back is ‘pushing’ for a move to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea emerged as surprise contenders to offer Fofana a route out of Leicester recently.
The Blues obviously recognise the talent the 21-year-old has, and with Thomas Tuchel looking to rebuild his backline following the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, Fofana would be a statement signing.
In line with his potential importance, and as we exclusively reported, Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes are holding out for a whopping £90m.
Chelsea made a new attempt to sign Josko Gvardiol in a swap deal with Werner on loan, but RB Leipzig have still no intention to sell him. More possibilities will be discussed. 🔵 #CFC
Fofana, top target but Leicester want to keep him.
Pavard, backup option as reported days ago.
