Chelsea have had an initial bid of £60 million rejected by Leicester but may be willing to go up to £70 million.
Leicester got £80 million for Harry Maguire a couple of seasons ago which was the world record transfer fee for a central defender. His fall from grace at Man United has been calamitous since then.
The Foxes are now looking to match that world record fee by asking for the same amount of money for Fofana as well.
The concerning thing is that Fofana has only played 7 games all of last season in the Premier League and he's still only 21 years old.
In fact, he's had 6 injuries in the last 3 years out of which 5 have been 4 have kept him out of more than a few games.
His most recent injury sidelined him for 223 days and he missed 41 games due to it.
Do you think Chelsea should sign Fofana for a world record transfer fee for a central defender?
