Wesley Fofana drops subtle transfer hint amid rumors of big-money Chelsea move


Leicester City centre-back Wesley Fofana has removed the club's name from his Twitter bio section, amid reports linking him with a move to Chelsea.

Fofana, who has five years left on his current deal at the King Power Stadium, has reportedly recently emerged as a transfer target for Chelsea. The Blues are currently in the market for a centre-back after the exits of Antonio Rudiger and Antonio Christensen earlier in the summer.

So far, the west London outfit have announced the signings of Raheem Sterling from Manchester City and Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli. According to The Athletic, new Blues co-owner Todd Boehly is working on a double swoop for Fofana and Inter Milan right-back Denzel Dumfries.

The report added that goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina is expected to be confirmed as the club's third summer signing later this week. However, he'll stay at Chicago Fire until January on loan.

In the wake of the speculations, Fofana has removed "Player at Leicester City" from the bio section of his Twitter account. Fofana joined the Foxes from Saint-Etienne for a fee of £36.5 million.

He has made 50 appearances across all competitions since his arrival in the summer of 2020. The 21-year-old, who is a France U21 international, has helped his club register 17 clean sheets in the process.

He missed the majority of the 2021-22 season due to a fibula fracture and registered only 1068 minutes of action last time around. According to Football London , he is valued at £70 million by the Foxes.
