Report: 'Amazing' player is unhappy and worried club are wrecking his potential move to Chelsea
Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana is reportedly getting frustrated with his club because he feels they’re wrecking a potential move to Chelsea this summer.
According to Sky Sports, Fofana is getting increasingly angry with Leicester and feels like they’re pricing him out of a transfer to Stamford Bridge.
It is understood the 21-year-old felt like the Foxes would listen to substantial offers for him, but so far they’ve rejected two Chelsea offers in the region of £60million.
The report explains the centre-back isn’t happy that Leicester are demanding more than £80million for his signature.
In addition, the French youngster wants a move to Stamford Bridge to play in the Champions League this season.
Fofana frustrated with Leicester
Leicester’s rising talent may be getting annoyed with the ongoing transfer saga, but deserves credit for continuing to play and perform in the opening two games of the Premier League season.
The talented centre-half has started both of Leicester’s opening matches while his name circulates in the transfer rumour mill.
Described as “amazing” by Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers, he looks a class above in a defence that’s a little vulnerable right now.
He’s got all the traits of a modern defender that could definitely see him slot into Thomas Tuchel’s backline.
It’s been reported that Chelsea will soon return with yet another bid for Fofana as they keep up their pursuit to get him.
Hopefully, this is a transfer that can still take place and end up with Fofana holding up a Chelsea shirt.
On paper, he looks a perfect fit to slot into the Blues line-up as the right-sided centre-back.
Reece James performed superbly when slotted into a centre-half position in the weekend’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham, but he’s so much more effective when he plays further up the pitch in a right wing-back role.
If Fofana joins, Chelsea could finally have some consistency on the right with James in a more offensive position.
