Transfers: Leicester would have refused an XXL offer from Chelsea for Wesley Fofana

Biggest transfer in the history of AS Saint-Etienne (35 million euros), will Wesley Fofana become the most expensive defender on the football planet? According to information from L’Equipe, the 21-year-old would have been the subject of an offer of 75 million euros from Chelsea, but which would have been refused by Leicester. If the Foxes had accepted this proposal, the French international Espoirs would have cost more than Matthijs De Ligt, bought 67 million euros this summer by Bayern Munich.

However, the Blues, who saw Andreas Christensen (Barcelona) and Antonio Rüdiger (Real Madrid) leave free during the offseason, still want to strengthen in central defense despite the recruitment of Kalidou Koulibaly, the former defensive leader of Naples.
