Chelsea confirm first January transfer for £10m ace

Chelsea have reached a pre-agreement with Norwegian side Molde for the signing of striker David Datro Fofana.

Fofana will become Graham Potter's first signing since becoming the club's head coach in September.

The Ivory Coast international, who turned 20 last week, will join the Blues in the new year for a fee believed to be in the region of £10m.

Fofana has impressed with his club this season, scoring 15 goals in 24 league matches so far, as well as producing five assists.

Fofana will offer Chelsea a fresh attacking option following the news that Armando Broja will miss the rest of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.

A club statement read: “Chelsea FC has reached a pre-agreement with Molde FK for the transfer of David Datro Fofana.

“The 20-year-old striker will join the Blues on January 1 2023. We look forward to welcoming David to the club.”
