Chelsea centre-back Wesley Fofana is set to have a scan after he came off injured in Chelsea’s behind-closed-doors friendly against Brentford.

The injury is a huge setback for the 22 year old centre-back who had only returned from a knee injury he suffered against AC Milan in October.

The severity of the injury isn’t yet known but there’s an obvious concern as he has only just returned from a knee injury.

More will be known in the coming days, with Graham Potter giving a press conference on Friday ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth on December 27.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have been offered the chance to sign Atletico Madrid duo Joao Felix and Matheus Cunha in January, according to Evening Standard.

The Blues are looking to sign an attacker in January after losing Armando Broja to a serious knee injury. 

Chelsea will explore both short and long-term options in January, with just Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kai Havertz available to lead the attack in the second half of the season.

Atletico Madrid have reportedly offered Chelsea the chance to sign Felix for £86million. Any temporary deal for Felix would require a significant loan fee and an option to buy him next summer. 

Atletico Madrid are also reportedly open to allowing Brazilian forward Cunha join Chelsea in January.

Felix is represented by super-agent Jorge Mendes, who is close to new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly.
