Chelsea working on deal to sign Fofana from Leicester

Chelsea are working on a deal to sign Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana.

Leicester's asking price could be prohibitive, with reports suggesting they could demand up to £85m, given Fofana has five years left on his contract.

The France U21 international signed a two-year contract extension with Leicester in March, which keeps him at the King Power Stadium until 2027.

It is thought Chelsea are exploring a deal which would involve players as part of the offer.

Chelsea have signed Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli and have made attempts to bring in Manchester City's Nathan Ake and Sevilla's Jules Kounde following the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
