been mooted as a potential transfer target for Chelsea this summer.
Centre-backs Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen both left for Barcelona earlier in the window, leaving the Blues short of options at the back. Since then, experienced centre-half Kalidou Koulibaly and versatile star Marc Cucurella have both arrived at Stamford Bridge, although srarcoded understands that manager Thomas Tuchel is still keen to add additional reinforcements to his backline.
French youngster Fofana is one player that is said to have attracted Tuchel’s attention and starcoded has now rounded up all the latest stories linking the former Saint Etienne youngster with a move to west London.
Fofana dropped a major hint on his future at the King Power Stadium after Leicester City’s 4-2 defeat to Arsenal on Saturday afternoon. The young centre-half walked over to the Foxes faithful after the final whistle at the Emirates Stadium, appearing to put his head into his elbow as if he were wiping his face – or tears – before wiping his face with his shirt.
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers had made it no secret that the Foxes need to sell before they can buy, offering as a huge boost to Chelsea and their pursuit of Fofana. Speaking about his side’s lack of transfer business this summer, Rodgers said: “It’s still going to be one where the club need to try and move on some players and see what that releases, there’s no guarantee for us at this stage.
“Once anything happens the club will let me know. In the meantime, my focus is on the players that are here. If something happens later down the line then we’ll address it then.”
