“Get more players in”, “Can he play striker?” – Chelsea fans react to Wesley Fofana joining from Leicester City

 

Chelsea fans have taken to social media to express their thoughts after the Blues confined the signing of Wesley Fofana from Leicester City. Chelsea have announced the signing of Fofana from Premier League rivals Leicester. They have forked out an initial sum of £70 million to acquire the centre-back’s services.

Fofana thus becomes the Blues’ seventh major signing of the summer transfer window. He joins Marc Cucurella, Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Carney Chukwuemeka, Gabriel Slonina and Cesare Casadei in moving to Stamford Bridge.

However, the 21-year-old’s arrival does not seem to have lightened the mood among Chelsea fans much. The London giants have spent well over £200 million this summer, but supporters believe the club need more signings. Here is how a section of the Blues faithful reacted to Fofana’s signing: One supporter wrote on Twitter:

“It’s funny how you all keeping buying defenders when all we need is [a] striker.”

Another fan stressed the need for the Blues to sign four more players before the transfer window closes tomorrow (September 1), writing:

“Love it guys, we can’t stop here. We need two more attackers, [a] midfielder and [a Reece] James backup.”

It remains to be seen if Chelsea fans will have their wishes granted before the transfer deadline. However, the Blues are, in fact, in the market to sign at least one forward after completing Fofana’s transfer. Thomas Tuchel’s side have been heavily linked with a move for Barcelona’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in recent days.

There have been suggestions that a €25 million deal is close to being agreed for the 33-year-old. The Stamford Bridge outfit are hopeful of getting a deal for Aubameyang across the line before the window closes. However, it is unclear whether they will make further additions to their squad.
