According to reports, Fofana has travelled to the United States for the examinations.

After Fofana’s catastrophic injury last season, The Athletic claims that this is being done for new owner Toddy Boehly’s “peace of mind.” Due to a fractured fibula, he was out for the majority of the campaign.

After a protracted dispute over his price, Chelsea and Leicester verbally agreed on Friday. Leicester had demanded more than the £80 million they received from Manchester United in exchange for Harry Maguire.

Because of his frustration, the player was benched for the Foxes’ most recent matches against Chelsea and Southampton.

“He won’t be available for the weekend [against Chelsea] and has trained with the U23 team,” Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers stated last week. I am focused on the squad and the guys we have. I can’t let my energy level drop. The clubs will be used if anything has to be done. We will have to make due with what we have till then.

In addition, Rodgers expressed optimism that certain transfers would be completed before the window closed. To enhance the squad is always vital, therefore it would be incredibly nice for the team to be able to achieve that. We shall make do with what we have until that situation changes, though.

In order to realise his goal of playing for Chelsea and become an exact replica of Didier Drogba, Fofana is now anticipated to sign a six-year contract. Before a verbal agreement could be made, a third Chelsea offer for Fofana, costing a total of £70 million, was quickly turned down. Drogba is revered in the community where Fofana was born.

The deal, which was reportedly for £60 million with a potential £10 million in add-ons, was presented to Sky Sports News as having “ambitious” ambitions for the further payments.

Two prior offers above £60 million for Chelsea were turned down.
