Speaking to BBC Sport correspondent Owynn Palmer-Atkin, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that Wesley Fofana is ‘not for sale’ amid reports of Chelsea’s interest in the center-back.
Does it close the door on the transfer? Not really if we remember a comment made by Rodgers a couple of years ago.
In July 2020, he commented on Chelsea’s interest in Ben Chilwell: “There’s no intention to sell Ben Chilwell and there’s absolutely no need to sell. So the message is he’s not for sale – it’s as simple as that.”
The following month, the left-back posed with a Chelsea shirt after completing a £45m move.
This time, Chelsea are desperate to sign a new center-back, and Fofana is their current top target, as per Fabrizio Romano. His move would be even more expensive than that of Chilwell, however.
