PSG eyeing up move for 21-year-old Chelsea target – Reports

PSG and Chelsea could lock horns in the transfer market once again this summer, with the two clubs interested in the services of Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana.

According to French outlet Le10Sport, PSG are looking to strengthen their options at the heart of defence after recently signing Nordi Mukiele from RB Leipzig on a five-year deal.

Newly appointed sporting director Luis Campos is said to have identified Fofana, 21, as the perfect option to bolster their ranks this summer. However, the Parisians will face serious competition from Chelsea, who are also interested in the Leicester City defender after missing out on Jules Kounde this month.

As per the aforementioned report, the player isn’t opposed to the idea of leaving the King Power Stadium this summer. However, both Chelsea and PSG will need to submit around €60 million to snap up the centre-back.

The player’s market value, though, stands at €40 million, according to Transfermarkt. It remains to be seen either club snap him up before the transfer window shuts.
