Following the departures of experienced central defenders Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen to Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively, Chelsea are short of options in defence.

The West London club have been quite active so far this summer transfer window as they have confirmed the signings of Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly ahead of the new season.

But then, Chelsea football club are not done with their transfer businesses just yet as they look to bring in another central defender before the summer transfer window closes.

And if reports are anything to go by, then Chelsea football club have been linked with a move for highly-rated Leicester City central defender Wesley Fofana this summer.

The 21-year-old France International, who decided to leave Ligue 1 side AS Saint-Etienne back in 2020 to join Leicester City has been quite impressive since he made the move.

The young centre-back was quite influential for Leicester City during the just concluded 2021/2022 season where he scored one goal in 11 appearances in all competitions.

His impressive performances in defence is said to have attracted interests from Chelsea football club and according to reports from The Sun, the Blues are keen on sealing a deal for him.

The reports further claimed that Chelsea football club are really interested in Wesley Fofana and have now agreed personal terms with the highly-rated centre-back.

It is believed that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel wants to add more quality to his options in defence and he is willing to make a move to lure Wesley Fofana away from Leicester City.

But then, it remains to be seen if Chelsea football club will be able to reach an immediate agreement with Leicester City and secure the signing of Wesley Fofana ahead of the start of the new season.
