According to reports, Leicester City have rejected Chelsea’s third bid of £70 million for Wesley Fofana.

Chelsea have seen two bids rejected for Fofana, and the club put out a third bid for the 21-year-old.

Having seen two bids rejected for Fofana, Chelsea put out an offer of £70m, which the Foxes failed to accept as well.

Reports claim that the Foxes are holding out for at least £80m.

According to The Telegraph, Leicester City snubbed Chelsea’s latest bid as they consider the add-ons ‘unrealistic and difficult to achieve’.

Leicester City want a sizeable amount as they are yet to sign a player in the summer transfer window so far, and a big deal will help them achieve their aim.

Leicester City have all the powers for negotiations, with Fofana having signed a new long-term contract last year.
