BREAKING: Chelsea Reach Agreement To Sign French Defender To Partner Koulibaly

Premier League giants Chelsea are set to continue their spending spree with the Thomas Tuchel-led side set to finally land highly rated centre back from rivals.

The Athletic correspondent David Ornstein who is always privy to happenings in the transfer market reports that the Blues have agreed to a deal with Leicester City for the signature of Frenchman Wesley Fofana.

The former Nice defender has been a vital cog for Brendan Rodgers but his time at the King Power stadium is not set to come to an end as he is set to join the Stamford bridge outfit.

Chelsea had seen a previous bid for the player rejected but it seems the club were determined to get their man and Tuchel who is keen on building a resolute defensive unit will be getting the player.

Fofana is expected to join his new teammates in the coming days which will end a transfer saga that had threatened to develop to the last part of the transfer window.

Chelsea have already signed Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly from Manchester City and Napoli respectively and the arrival of the centre-back will be a massive coup for Tuchel.
