Chelsea learn new price for Wesley Fofana transfer as Leicester 'ready to sell' defender


Share post:


Leicester are now prepared to sell defender Wesley Fofana and Chelsea believe they can sign the France under-21 international for less than £80million, according to reports. The Foxes had initially remained firm that Fofana would not be sold, but a deal could now be agreed before the September 1 transfer deadline.

The Blues have pursued Fofana since losing out on Jules Kounde to Barcelona. Leicester wanted around £85m when reports of Chelsea’s interest first emerged. 

But they could now renege on that stance, with Chelsea feeling that a structured proposal worth just under £80m could be enough to secure a transfer. Leicester need to sell in order to complete their own transfer business, having not made a single outfield signing all summer. 

Leicester’s stance ‘softened’ after a series of meetings between head coach Brendan Rodgers and Fofana. The 21-year-old has insisted that he wants to join Chelsea.
