Wesley Fofana transfer: Chelsea, Leicester reach deal, per reports

Leicester City’s resistance as it relates to parting ways with French center back Wesley Fofana appears to have been broken.

Chelsea and Leicester have reportedly reached a deal that will see the 21-year-old defender become part of the makeover at Stamford Bridge, according to French outlet RMC Sport. L’Equipe reports that the deal is worth $82.5 million, with add-ons potentially making Fofana the most expensive defensive signing in history (that distinction currently belongs to Harry Maguire, another center back on whom Leicester cashed in when it sold to Manchester United for $110 million three years ago).

Chelsea had been seeking reinforcement in central defense even after signing Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli earlier this summer. It lost Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen to Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively, on free transfers and continues its summer of spending under new owner Todd Boehly with its most expensive signing of them all.
