The Athletic’s David Ornstein, an extremely reliable source, says Chelsea are pushing for a move for Wesley Fofana.
Leicester have set a £85m asking price for the defender. The Blues will try to lower the fee by offering players to the Foxes.
Ornstein writes that it would be ‘difficult’ to get the Frenchman as Leicester don’t want to sell him.
However, Chelsea are determined to bring the centre-back to the Bridge. They are also keen on landing Denzel Dumfries, and the Blues’ goal is to sign both players.
