Chelsea have officially confirmed and announced the signing of Wesley Fofana as their new defender from their Premier League rivals – Leicester City.Confirmed!! Wesley Fofana joins Chelsea Leicester City

Leicester had earlier turned down three bids from the Thomas Tuchel team for the center-back, but finally now agreed to sell him for a record fee after Brendan Rodgers noted that he wants Fofana’s future to be decided as soon as possible.

A breakthrough was made in the clubs’ extended negotiations on Friday night for the center-back, who has been a longtime priority of the Blues.

Fofana, one of the most widely respected young players in the Premier League, committed to the Blues on a seven-year deal and will help Thomas Tuchel’s defense in 2022–23 season.

Footballrover gathered that Leicester and Chelsea have agreed on a fee of Β£70 million for Fofana, plus add-ons that could push the price up to or beyond the Β£80 million Manchester United paid for Harry Maguire in 2019β€”a record price for a defender.

Since moving to Leicester from St. Etienne in October 2020, the Frenchman, 21, has made 52 appearances and because of the rumors over his future, he was not given playing time last weekend against Southampton.

Rodgers claims the Frenchman was not in the proper frame of mind to be part of the team before the Foxes’ 2-1 loss at Chelsea on Saturday, but it is now clear that they were only checking to make sure he is mentally fit to complete the deal.Confirmed!!

The two last days have been really big days for me and I’m very happy. I trained this morning with the team and it’s a dream for me. I’m very excited to start playing games for the fans and the club. I’m here to win trophies – the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, everything. I came here to win and the club is built to win trophies so I’m here to continue that.” – Fofana said.
