I Am Here To Win Trophies
In his first chat with Chelsea website, Fofana said he came to the former EPL champions to win trophies.
“The two last days have been really big days for me and I’m very happy.
“I trained this morning with the team and it’s a dream for me. I’m very excited to start playing games for the fans and the club.
“I’m here (to) win trophies – the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, everything. I came here to win and the club is built to win trophies so I’m here to continue that.”
Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly added: “Wesley is a hugely promising defender who has already proven his quality in the Premier League at a young age.
“We are delighted we were able to bring one of Europe’s most exciting talents to Chelsea and further strengthen that area of our squad, both for this season and many more to come.”
He was named as the Foxes’ Young Player of the Year in his debut campaign in the Premier League, 2020/21, with one of his best performances in England so far coming against Chelsea in that season’s FA Cup final, as Leicester won the trophy for the first time.
