Wesley Fofana has requested Leicester City let him LEAVE to join Chelsea

Wesley Fofana has reportedly requested to leave Leicester City, allowing him to make a big-money move to Chelsea this summer.

The Blues have already had bids of £60million and £65m rejected as they seek to bolster their options in central defence.

The Foxes are, however, holding out for a fee of around £80m for the Frenchman before accepting an offer.

Leicester’s original stance was that the 21 year-old was not for sale. Though manager Brendan Rodgers also admitted this week that ‘naturally if there is interest from other clubs then of course that is looked at by the club.’
