Brendan Rodgers rejected two offers from Chelsea for Wesley Fofana

Chelsea are pursuing the young defender this summer.

The 21-year-old defender penned a new contract with the Foxes back in March until the summer of 2027.

Even though manager Brendan Rodgers is refusing to let the defender leave, Leicester could cash in to fund their own summer rebuild.

Chelsea have seen two of their bids with the latest one at £70m being rejected.

“There have been no new bids this week,” the Leicester boss told a press conference. “There were two [bids], but nowhere near what the club would consider. We’re not looking to sell.

“Naturally if there’s interest from other clubs, that is looked at by the club. He’s a top young defender and there are not too many around his age.”

Rodgers has continuously urged the defender to continue his development at King Power Stadium.

“Another year for him at least would be really important for his development,” the boss continued. “Wesley is quite calm on the situation. He is aware of the interest. He’s just getting on with his work.”
