Most Premier League clubs are keen on signing Fofana but Chelsea won the race.

90min reported earlier in December that the Blues led several other Premier League sides in the race to sign the Ivorian from Norwegian side Molde.

It had previously been reported that any deal was worth an estimated £ 8.6 million, with the Blues hoping Fofana can somewhat cover Armando Broja, who suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury during a friendly against Aston Villa.

Fofana had just one year left on his current deal at Molde and it’s believed Todd Boehly sees the forward as one for the future.

 

Fofana represents a commitment from Graham Potter to sign young, upcoming stars, who are yet unproven on the biggest stage but will be sure to receive adequate playing time from the former Brighton boss.
