Gary Lineker has begged Wesley Fofana to stay at Leicester for another year, despite the defender nearing a move to Chelsea.

The talented midfielder has agreed personal terms with the Blues, who are looking to negotiate a fee with the Foxes likely to be £80 million or more.

But Lineker urged Fofana, 21, to stay with King Power for another season – and he insisted that “all the monster clubs” will still be interested in him next summer as well.

He said: ‘Fear the worst, but hope he finds it in himself to give @LCFC another season.

Signed a new long contract when he was badly injured. Another year and all the monster clubs want you @Wesley_Fofanaa.”

air sports have reported that Fofana is growing unsettled at the club as he feels Leicester is praising him for a transfer, stating that the Blues – under new American owner Todd Boehly – could be willing to pay a world record fee for a defender .

The French prodigy is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects in European football after impressing since signing with Leicester from France’s Saint-Etienne in October 2020 for around £30million.

He won the club’s Young Player of the Season award in his first campaign, but last August broke his leg in an exhibition game against Villarreal, limiting himself to just seven league games and 12 appearances in all competitions.

However, the France under-21 international signed a new and improved five-year contract in March, which is said to see him stay in the East Midlands until 2027.

He said at the time: ‘I am very happy to have signed a new contract. It shows that the club has faith in me. I’m really happy to be here. It’s my club, I love the fans, so I’m really happy and really looking forward to playing again.

“I love everything about the Club. I like the city. It’s a family I love the most. Everyone is close and gets along well. We also have a great team and continue to make progress, with the desire to win more trophies. That is why I have committed my future to the Club until 2027. I want to achieve more with the Club.’
