Chelsea look to still be working on signing Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana this transfer window, and his manager Brendan Rodgers has been taking questions on it again.
It looks very clear that Fofana wants to leave and join Chelsea. In fact, that bit is probably the only bit that is fully clear. What we don’t know yet is whether Chelsea are going to offer enough to get this over the line or now.
"He really wants to go to Chelsea. I think this will happen. I saw him Saturday and I think he will put a transfer request in and eventually go to Chelsea. This is the next level, he wants to work with Thomas Tuchel and Thiago Silva."

Rodgers says he doesn’t have any updates since he spoke last week, and there have not been any new offers that have arrived from Chelsea. However, he also admits that he will take Fofana out of his matchday squad this weekend if he isn’t in the right mindset.

I can actually see that happening, because it is clear that Fofana is frustrated. He just needs to hand in an official transfer request I believe, to get this done now.
