Fofana has been forced to train with Leicester’s Under-21s after Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers revealed he wasn’t in the right mood to face Southampton last weekend.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has made 52 appearances for Leicester since joining from St Etienne in October 2020.

Chelsea are also understood to continue their pursuit of Everton winger Anthony Gordon and former Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
