Since the UK Government restriction was lifted, Chelsea have shown more ambition than ever in a transfer market and are still in that vein of signing as much as possible.

In that sense, the Blues go everywhere. Even by the same Premier League. And it is that now they pointed their eyes at Leicester City, from where they want Wesley Fofana and Jamie Vardy.

At 21, the Foxes defender became one of the most valuable young centre-backs in the English league despite injury last season, while the English striker is out of contract with the team in 12 months.

The 90min outlet reported that both the London club are monitoring Vardy’s situation with the idea that he could be a relatively cheap replacement option after Romelu Lukaku was loaned out to Inter. In addition, everything indicates that Timo Werner already has one foot out.

There is no word yet on the Briton’s asking price, but according to ESPN, Leicester are convinced that Fofana is not available at any price despite previous rumors that he is valued at more than $85m.

Meanwhile, The Mirror claims that since interest from the Stamford Bridge outfit became apparent, the centre-back has been actively lobbying to be allowed to deal and leave.
