Leicester City are asking for a fee of a region around £70 million from the Blues if they want to acquire the signature of the defender this summer according to reports.

The Foxes may sell some of its stars amid fears over Financial Fair Play. Their number one choice goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has an agreement to join French club Nice Belgian International midfielder Youri Tielemans who is strongly linked with a move to Arsenal.

Leicester are yet to make any signings this summer and they will have to sell players before buying them. Fofana is one of the names linked with a move away after an impressive display in Leicester's backline.

Leicester are unwilling to cash the 22-year-old who signed in 2020 from Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne for £36.5 million deal. Wesley Fofana is under contract until 2027 at King Power stadium.
