Fresh Chelsea updates emerge on De Jong, Fofana & Aubameyang

A number of transfer updates regarding Chelsea have emerged on Saturday.

Chelsea have already had a productive summer window, signing Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella, Carney Chukwuemeka and Gabriel Slonina.

However, it appears at least another three names could come through the door at Stamford Bridge before the transfer window slams shut at the end of the month.

One of those names could be Wesley Fofana of Leicester City. Chelsea saw a £70m bid for the centre-back rejected on Friday, but it is now being reported that the Blues could go as high as £85m to land the Frenchman:

On top of that, Fofana recently spoke to the Telegraph and expressed his desire to win trophies, something he of course has a better chance of doing at Chelsea: “I want to not only win trophies but try to be the best defender in my position in the world.”

Elsewhere, an update on Chelsea’s pursuit of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has emerged.

It is claimed Thomas Tuchel is open to signing the former Arsenal man, but Barcelona want to use Aubameyang as back-up to Robert Lewandowski and would prefer it if Memphis Depay left.

However, Barcelona now have to pay Aubameyang a higher wage this season as Arsenal are no longer subsidizing his wages, which is unlikely to help the Spanish side’s financial woes.

And finally, Sport are reporting that Chelsea have offered Marcos Alonso as part of the deal to sign Frenkie de Jong:
