According to Hadrien Grenier, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are monitoring the situation of Chelsea transfer target Wesley Fofana. The £85 million-rated Leicester City defender has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer.

As per Euro Sport, Chelsea are now prepared to match Leicester's £85 million asking price for the France international, following the rejection of the west London side's initial two offers.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has shown a keen interest in the Frenchman's services as he continues his quest to sign young centre-backs this summer.

Following the west London side's victory over Everton in the Premier League opener, the German manager dropped his strongest hint at signing Fofana. He said (via the Evening Standard):

“We also need to make sure we have a new generation to take over in the next years but the guys are strong that is why they are under contract and the guys have our trust."

PSG have also been really active in the transfer window, with Vitinha, Nuno Mendes, Renato Sanches and Nordi Mukiele completing moves to the Parc des Princes this summer.

However, according to The Sun, Fofana is keen on a move to Chelsea. It remains to be seen where he ends up.
