Done Deal: Chelsea complete £8.6m first January signing announcement imminent



Chelsea splash £68m for high-rated Nigeria striker as he arrives London to undergo medical on his possible move to Stamford Bridge

Chelsea are set to be one of the busiest Premier League clubs in the January transfer window after spending close to £300million over the summer on eight new signings

Chelsea look set to complete their first January transfer by signing David Datro Fofana from Molde in an £8.6million move. The 19-year-old striker has scored 15 goals and provided a further five assists in 24 appearances so far this season.

Armando Broja suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury during a friendly against Aston Villa, leaving Graham Potter’s attacking options significantly weakened. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kai Havertz have both struggled for form this season resulting in the Blues exploring possible striker options ahead of the January transfer window.

Fofana has one year left on his current deal with Molde but now looks set for a switch to Stamford Bridge. Personal terms are still being discussed between the player and Blues but a deal is expected to go through in the coming weeks, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.
