And the Italian journalist adds that Chelsea are not going to stop there, he has be told that Chelsea are preparing another bid to push for this move.

Additionally, from Fabrizio tweet, Fofona is already revealing where he wants to play next season. He says that Wesley also wants this move, something that could be a plus on Chelsea's side.
