Chelsea boss Tuchel turns to Leicester defender Fofana

Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana has emerged as a target for Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, reports in France have claimed.

The French centre-back was a revelation in his debut season for Leicester after signing from St. Etienne in the summer of 2020.

Fofana's progress has been delayed after suffering a leg fracture against Villarreal.

However, that hasn't stopped Chelsea from pursuing their interest in the 20-year-old.

Foot Mercato reports that the Blues are keeping a close eye on Fofana in anticipation for a move in the future.

It is likely Leicester will demand huge money for Fofana due to the immense potential he has shown over his 28 appearances for the club.
