Chelsea have massive €75 million bid rejected for Premier League star: Reports 

Leicester City have reportedly turned down Chelsea’s opening bid for French defender Wesley Fofana. The youngster has emerged as a top transfer target for the Blues, who are looking to sign another high-profile defender this summer.

According to L’Equipe, Chelsea have received a huge €75m offer for Fofana which was rejected by Brendan Rodgers’ side. The Foxes are believed to be reluctant to part ways with the 21-year-old this summer.

Wesley Fofana joined Leicester City from Saint-Etienne for £36million in 2020. The Frenchman enjoyed an incredible debut season with the club as he helped them finish fifth in the Premier League table and win the FA Cup. His consistent performances resulted in him being voted Leicester City’s Young Player of the Season by the club’s supporters.

The defender missed much of the 2021/22 season with a broken fibula but returned to action in April. Despite his lack of engagement last season, Chelsea appear to be huge admirers of the Frenchman and are keen to sign him this summer.

The Blues parted ways with Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger after their contracts expired on June 30. The club is therefore expected to sign an adequate replacement for the duo.

They took over from Kalidou Koulibaly last month and are looking to sign another high-profile centre-back.
