The transfer window is taking on an unexpected dimension in England. Blame it on the Chelsea club, who are desperate for one and maybe even two centre-backs. The task seems difficult because there have been many failures between Matthijs de Ligt, Nathan Aké, Jules Koundé, who was still a hair away from signing, and now Presnel Kimpembe, who should in fact stay at PSG at the end of this summer
As of now, the priority is called Wesley Fofana (21 years old) but once again, he is a real bag of knots. Leicester have no sellers and even rejected a €75m bid from the Blues. There are two reasons for this. The first is that the Foxes have a lot of problems in this transfer window. They have yet to recruit a single player and are the only ones in England to do so.
Leicester want at least £80m
Brendan Rodgers also has his thoughts on the matter. He has no intention of losing it, even though he was heavily injured during the first part of last season. The player would not necessarily hear it with the same ear, despite his statements in the telegram of the day. “It’s a great season for me and for Leicester. There are already great strikers in the Premier League and even more for this season after the transfer market. I’m excited and I’m ready”old Stéphanois insists.
According to the same English media, he would like to join Chelsea, which we can confirm. The Blues haven’t thrown in the towel on this yet. And then Leicester didn’t fall into their heads either. In reality, the management has set itself a goal: to make Fofana the most expensive central player in the world, a record that the club already holds. Still according to the English media, he expects at least 80 million pounds, or 95 million euros, thus surpassing the 89 million euros of the sale of Harry Maguire to Manchester United in 2019. We have to believe that he will become a specialty of the house
