Leicester City sign Saint Etienne defender Wesley Fofana

Leicester City has been in great form in the first three matches of this new Premier League 2020-21 season. They have beaten Manchester City by 5-2 in their last match.

Leicester’s attack led by veteran striker Jamie Vardy looks formidable, but their defence needs reinforcement. Harry Maguire left for Manchester United last season, so they have now signed the 19-year-old as a future prospect.

Fofana is a Saint-Etienne academy graduate. He broke into the first team in May 2019 and made 17 Ligue 1 starts for the club last season. He also helped them to reach last season’s Coupe de France final, but eventually, they lost 1-0 to Paris Saint-Germain.

Wesley Fofana will join Leicester City on a permanent deal worth €40m including add ons. This will be Leicester’s second defensive signing this summer after they signed Timothy Castagne as a replacement for Ben Chilwell, who moved to Chelsea.
