Chelsea FC reportedly agrees deal for a top defender


Chelsea Football Club have reportedly found a replacement for Wesley Fofana who has been ruled out for most of the 2023/24 football season.

The Athletic confirmed that Chelsea have reached an agreement in principle with Monaco for Axel Disasi. The Blues are said to have agreed on a deal for the French international defender worth €45million.

Chelsea are in desperate need to fill the void that will be left by Fofana, so the signing of the Disasi as the right center-back will be a big boost for the team going into next season.
