Chelsea reach terms with Leicester defender Fofana; third offer planned

Chelsea have struck terms with Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana.

And the Blues are also in talks for RB Leipzig stopper Josko Gvardiol.

Chelsea have had two bids of £60m and £65m rejected for centre-back Fofana. Leicester's original stance was that the 21 year-old was not for sale.

However, the Daily Mail says Leicester will sell for £80m.

The Frenchman has also agreed a contract for around £200,000-a-week with Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have also had talks with Josko Gvardiol's representative Marjan Šišić but RB Leipzig are determined to hang onto the highly-rated Croatian.
