Leicester star Wesley Fofana drops hint on Chelsea move

Wesley Fofana has removed any mention of Leicester City from his Instagram bio and also posted a cryptic Instagram story, as rumours linking him with a move to Chelsea continues.

Fofana has been a good addition since arriving at the King Power Stadium in October 2020 and returned to his best last campaign after an extended period on the sidelines due to a broken leg.

This summer, the defender has been the subject of interest from the Blues, who are on the lookout for defensive reinforcements after the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Christensen.

However, Leicester head coach Brendan Rodgers has said that the centre-back is not for sale at any price. Despite the club’s reluctance to sell, Fofana’s social media activity suggests he may have other ideas.

On Tuesday he removed Leicester from his Instagram bio and then ramped up the uncertainty with an allusion that his future may lie elsewhere.

“My father told me you’re going to annoy a lot of people when you start doing what’s best for you and I’ve begun to realise it,” the post read.

The Leicester manager is preparing for the new season with Fofana in his plans, recently sayimg: “No, he’s not for sale.

“When we looked at him he had made 17 league starts. Everyone had a look at him back then but he’s come here, really flourished and developed, not just as a player but as a young man.

“He really respects the club, I’ve got no doubt that in the future he’ll be on that [highest] stage but he’s very comfortable, he feels good here.

“He has a great relationship with his team-mates which is important and there’s no doubt he will grace that stage. But for now he’s here, he’s developing and like I said he’s not for sale.”

Rodgers has been open about the fact that Leicester – who are the only club in Europe’s major five leagues not to make any addition this summer – will not be able to add to their team before trimming its numbers beforehand.

Should Fofana agitate for a move to Chelsea, the Foxes may be tempted to cash in and give themselves some breathing room in the transfer market.
