Chelsea working on double swoop signing for Wesley Fofana

Chelsea have firm interest in signing Wesley Fofana from Leicester and Denzel Dumfries from Inter Milan, according to The Athletic.

Thomas Tuchel is desperate to make further signings in defence after bringing in Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli this season, following the exits of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

The Foxes value centre-back Fofana at £80million but the Blues hope to pay less and could offer players as part of a potential deal. Inter, meanwhile, need to sell players to help balance the books this summer, so Chelsea have real hope they can sign right-back Dumfries
