Fofana was just back fit from a long break at the end of last season and be ready to compete in the Premier League football again. He has been turned out to be the target of many clubs in the market this summer. One of them is Chelsea, who still want more centre-backs but Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers has insisted that he is not interested in any offers for Wesley Fofana, a French defender.
Sky Sports, an English media, has reported about the Premier Leagues football that Chelsea had made two offers to buy Fofana and all were rejected by Leicester, but the Blue Lions did not give up. The third offer will be prepared with the higher transferring fee.
For this reason, Rodgers had to answer the issue, "We don't want to sell. That's the point. He is a great defender at a young age and there are not many of them at his age. Another year with Leicester would have been good for his development. He just works hard and continues practicing well.”
The 21-year-old Fofana has already signed the new contract with Leicester City on March. His contract at the King Power Stadium will be extended until 2027.
Apart from Chelsea, another big team that is interested in Fofana, the French league team "Paris Saint-Germain".
Despite the Chelsea club has agreed to offer 75 million euros and 82 million euros to Leicester for consideration, the Foxes rejected all of them. It makes Paris Saint-Germain or "PSG" to be ready to offer to Fofana back to play in Ligue 1 again after this player has played for Saint-Etienne.
PSG originally wanted to sign Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar, but the deal has not progressed so they have to look for new options and aim for Fofana instead. They also expect to get this player to join the team.
