Chelsea is currently lacking in numbers at the back after losing a number of defenders this summer.
Thomas Tuchel used his typical back three against Everton in their season opener, but the three center backs were all in their late 30s.
A younger player would be a wise choice to target as Chelsea will be keen to add another defensive option.
Fabrizio Romano, via his Substack column, claimed that Leicester had turned down multiple offers from Chelsea for Fofana.
It's not surprising that Chelsea is interested in signing the 21-year-old defender given his stellar recent performances for Leicester.
Le Parisien claims that PSG will now put up a fight for his signature against Chelsea.
It could be an interesting competition to sign Fofana this summer because both of the aforementioned clubs have substantial financial resources.
Tuchel’s side have already submitted a £70m bid, which was rejected, so it could develop into an astronomical fee if the two clubs go head-to-head in an auction for the French defender.
