Chelsea are moving from deal to deal this transfer window and right now, multiple deals are being worked on. With Marc Cucurella set to be confirmed today, the next point of call appears to be Wesley Fofana of Leicester City.
Of course, naturally, his club do not want to sell him. However, they ARE in negotiations with Chelsea over the fee, so The Blues must surely be getting indications that something CAN be done here.
In fact, The Sun are reporting that Chelsea are even willing to match Leicester’s high valuation for Fofana, which is said to be £85m.
It seems as though any proposals from Chelsea have so far been knocked back, but Todd Boehly and his team have yet to be deterred from making the move happen and are going back with more proposals.
Thomas Tuchel wants Fofana to complete his defensive transformation this summer, and it looks like Boehly isn’t stopping until he gets him!
