Chelsea could fork out over £80 million to land Wesley Fofana and believe they could sign the defender, despite Leicester City insisting he is not for sale.
According to Matt Law of Daily Telegraph, Chelsea are prepared to pay over £80 million to sign Wesley Fofana. Despite Leicester City’s insistence about the player not being on sale, the Blues believe if their offer matches the asking price for their top defensive target, a transfer could materialise.
It has been a strange transfer window for Chelsea, who have been caught off guard regarding some of their transfer targets. For instance, many believe they have overpaid for some players like Marc Cucurella this summer.
Chelsea signed Cucurella in a £62 million deal, including bonuses, which was far more than the £50 million asking prices widely reported in the media. Similarly, Leicester City are demanding around £80 million for Wesley Fofana, for whom the Blues are reportedly prepared to fork out over the asking price.
Matt Law of Daily Telegraph has reported that Chelsea could be ready to pay over £80 million to land Fofana this summer. The young Frenchman is now considered the west London club’s top defensive target, despite signing Cucurella and Kalidou Koulibaly.
