Chelsea boss Tuchel will be 'very annoyed' that club have failed to get Fofana transfer done, says club legend Petit | The Sun

CHELSEA cult hero Emmanuel Petit has declared that Thomas Tuchel will be "very annoyed" by the Wesley Fofana transfer saga.

The Blues have had three bids rejected by Leicester for the French centre-back, with their latest proposal at £70million knocked back by the Foxes.

SunSport understands that the West London outfit have pulled the plug on their move for the 21-year-old as Leicester hold out for a whopping £85m.

But Fofana still dreams of a switch to Stamford Bridge, with the defender to be left out of Saturday's clash between the two clubs.

Chelsea go into the meeting without a win in their last two matches, while N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic are out through injury, with Kalidou Koulibaly suspended.

And Chelsea's frustrations in the market are claimed to be annoying boss Tuchel who remains desperate to bolster his backline and attack.

Former Blues midfielder Emmanuel Petit told Fair Betting Sites: "I think he’s very annoyed by the fact they are not active on the transfer market.

"He wants players, especially at the back.  He could’ve anticipated that, to be honest with you.

"When you let three important players at the back leave for free, you should have anticipated this.

"This year has been very difficult, mentally, for the club, the fans, the players, the manager.

"You could see that. They started the Premier League tired.

"I can see that Tuchel is very tired, is very nervous. He was complaining about the pre-season tour, all the trips they had to do, it was exhausting for them.

"The transfer market is ending in a couple of days, he doesn’t see any players coming in, so I can understand his frustration.

"On top of it, he’s losing big important players, Kante for example, Kovacic is not fit, he lost [Kalidou] Koulibaly on the sending off."

A victory for winless Leicester in the capital would see them leapfrogChelsea in the table.
