Chelsea have been linked with Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana.
The 21-year-old defender has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer but Leicester City has valued the youngster in the region of £80million.
The Blues are looking to strengthen their squad following the departure of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger this summer.
They lost long-term contract Jules Kounde to Barcelona last week and running short of options for a defender.
Liverpool legend Steve Nicol believes the Foxes defender is still not ready to join Chelsea.
“If Fofana goes to Chelsea he’s off his head,” Nicol told ESPN FC.
“The kid’s not ready, he burst onto the scene – you could say – but he’s not anywhere close to being the finished article.
“His biggest problem is his starting position. Playing for Leicester week-in, week-out even if you’re making mistakes, you’ll learn quicker and you’ll then be the finished article.
“You’re not going to be doing that at Chelsea if you’re not playing regularly, he needs to play regularly and he’ll be off his head to go to Chelsea.”
