According to reports, Chelsea have seen a £60m bid for Wesley Fofana turned down by Leicester City.

The Foxes aren’t interested in selling the 21-year-old, and would demand at least £80m if they are to make a sale.

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol, has now turned Fofana to shun a move to Chelsea.

According to the Liverpool legend, a move to Chelsea won’t be a right move for 21-year-old Fofana.

Steve Nicol has told the defender that he is not yet ready to join Chelsea:

“If Fofana goes to Chelsea he’s off his head,” Nicol told ESPN FC.

“The kid’s not ready, he burst onto the scene – you could say – but he’s not anywhere close to being the finished article.

“His biggest problem is his starting position. Playing for Leicester week-in, week-out even if you’re making mistakes, you’ll learn quicker and you’ll then be the finished article.

“You’re not going to be doing that at Chelsea if you’re not playing regularly, he needs to play regularly and he’ll be off his head to go to Chelsea.”
