Chelsea on verge of signing David Datro Fofana

Chelsea have almost completed the signing of David Datro Fofana from Molde, according to Fabrizio Romano. A full agreement between the two clubs is in place, with the transfer fee set at over €10 million, and the proposed personal terms are being discussed between Chelsea on one hand and the player and his entourage on the other.

Set to turn 20 next week, the 19-year-old attacker passed through the youth ranks at Abidjan City FC in the Ivory Coast, his homeland. He joined Molde in February 2021 and has gone on to score 24 goals and contribute 10 assists in 65 matches in all competitions for the Norwegian club, helping them win both the Eliteserien title and the Norwegian Cup.

Primarily a centre-forward, Fofana can play on either attacking flank as well.

For Chelsea, Fofana appears to be a replacement for Armando Broja. The 21-year-old Albania international has suffered an ACL rupture and has been ruled out for the rest of the season, having made 12 Premier League appearances this season.
