Since losing out on Jules Kounde, Chelsea have now turned attention to Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana.

The 21-year-old defender can play either side, left or right centre-back, and fits Thomas Tuchel’s requirements.

Despite being just 21, Fofana has become a key part of the Foxes team, and played 28 league games for Brendan Rodgers side last season, even though he suffered a fibula fracture at the start of the 2021/22 season.

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are interested in signing the highly-rated Leicester City defender, Fofana.

One of Fofana’s friends who he follows on Instagram, Niko, has revealed that the Frenchman is actually a Blues fan.

Nico shared these images on his story:

This caption translates to: “The new jersey will look good on you.”

The caption translates to: “Ever since you were a kid…”

By the time Nico deleted the stories a couple of hours after posting them, Chelsea fans had already spotted the images.

It’s yet to be seen if Chelsea can sign Fofana from Leicester City, as he only recently signed a new deal with the Foxes until 2027.
