According to reports, Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers will not include Wesley Fofana in the foxes line-up against Chelsea on Saturday, August 27, 2022. Due to Leicester City’s insistence on a record transfer cost of £80 million for the defender, the Blues had three of their offers rejected.
Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Chelsea, has admitted that the team needs to sign additional defenders to replace Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, who departed on free transfers to Real Madrid and Chelsea, respectively.
Kalidou Koulibaly was acquired by Chelsea from Napoli on a four-year contract, but Chelsea is still seeking to add at least one more center-back before the transfer season closes.
Wesley Fofana (21) has not been included in the Leicester squad to face Chelsea this weekend, according to RMC Sport.
