Wesley Fofana Drops TWO Major Chelsea Transfer Hints As Leicester City's Stance Revealed

Chelsea target Wesley Fofana has dropped two major transfer hints on social media as Leicester City’s stance has been revealed.

The 21-year-old appears to be Chelsea’s primary option in central defence after losing Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen this summer.

Kalidou Koulibaly has arrived at the club, with Marc Cucurella set to join from Brighton and Hove Albion after Chelsea informed the club that they are willing to pay his £50 million valuation.

The likes of Jules Kounde, Nathan Ake, Matthijs de Ligt, Presnel Kimpembe and Milan Skriniar have all been linked with moves to Stamford Bridge this summer, with only Koulibaly arriving in defence so far ahead of the new season.

Recent reports have stated that Leicester are interested in Chelsea defender Levi Colwill if talks regarding a move for Fofana are to progress this summer.

However, Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers, has insisted that Fofana is not for sale this summer, which has dealt the Blues a blow in their pursuit.

However, the defender has now handed Chelsea somewhat of a boost after dropping two major transfer hints on social media.

Firstly, the 21-year-old appears to have removed Leicester City from his bio on Twitter, causing Chelsea fans to get excited on social media.

The defender used to have his current employers in his bio, with this no longer being the case as it looks to have been changed sometime on Tuesday morning.

Furthermore, Fofana took to Instagram to drop another hint as he uploaded a quote in French.

When translated to English the post reads: "My father told me you're going to annoy a lot of people when you start doing what's best for you and I've begun to realise it.”

It is unclear as to whether this is to do with a potential move to Chelsea, with one of his friends previously posting a photograph of the defender in a Blues kit in the past.

Leicester’s stance has also been revealed, as Ben Jacobs reported on the transfer saga.

The journalist stated that the two clubs are close to £20 million apart in their initial valuation for Fofana, with Chelsea prepared to go up.

Further talks are set to take place this week as the Blues step up their pursuit for the Leicester star.

It remains to be seen as to whether a deal can be struck, with Fofana’s social media activities putting his future into doubt.

Chelsea will be hopeful of concluding a deal as the Premier League season gets underway on Saturday.
