Wesley Fofana: Chelsea close to agreeing deal with Leicester for defender

Chelsea are close to agreeing a deal with Leicester for defender Wesley Fofana for a fee believed to be £70m plus add-ons.

The bid is Chelsea’s fourth for the French centre-back, having seen an offer of around £60m up-front rejected by the Foxes earlier this week.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers earlier confirmed Fofana, who missed last weekend’s defeat to Southampton amid the speculation over his future, would also be unavailable for Saturday’s trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea.

Fofana wants to move to the Blues and, speaking after Leicester’s penalty shoot-out victory at Stockport in the Carabao Cup, Rodgers confirmed the player was training with the club’s U23s after failing to turn up to a training session last week.
