Report: Chelsea 'Still Pushing' For Leicester City's Wesley Fofana

The Frenchman is reportedly Chelsea's number one target for the remainder of the window and they are still heavily pursuing him.

According to recent reports, Chelsea remain undeterred by Leicester City's current unwillingness to sell Wesley Fofana. They plan to continue to bid for him for the remainder of the transfer window if that is what it takes.

Ben Jacobs has again reported on the current happenings surrounding this potential transfer. The Blues are 'still pushing' for the 21-year-old but have been met with mighty resistance thus far from the Foxes, who wish to hold onto him.
