Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign who fans call the new Drogba or the new Haaland for £11 million ahead of the January transfer window.
The Blues have agreed to sign Fofana for £11 million from the same club that groomed Haaland Molde in Norway. Fofana is also from the same country- Ivory Coast as Chelsea’s legendary striker Drogba.
Fofana has impressed in 2022 with Molde, bagging 15 goals and five assists in 24 matches, as he gets set to storm the Premier League.
“Chelsea FC has reached a pre-agreement with Molde FK for the transfer of David Datro Fofana,” read a club statement.
“The 20-year-old striker will join the Blues on 1 January 2023. We look forward to welcoming David to the club!”
Fofana has always dreamt to play for Chelsea and this is the perfect opportunity for him to fulfill his dream.
The Ivorian arrival will give Potter another striking option in attack alongside Kai Havertz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with Armando Broja already out of the season due to injury.
