With the departures of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Riediger earlier this month, Chelsea have been left without vital defensive links.
The new situation forced the leaders of the club to activate the market and bring in new reinforcements. First, the transfer of Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli took place, and now two new defenders are on target.
According to reliable sports journalist David Ornstein, the Blues are currently in talks with Leicester’s Wesley Fofana and Inter’s Denzel Dumfries, who they want to sign before the end of the transfer window.
If he wants to bring Fofana to “Stamford Bridge”, the London club will have to pay an amount of around 90 million euros, which is demanded by Leicester, while bringing Dumfries would require much smaller funds.
