Chelsea transfer news and rumours: Final Fofana bid, Aubameyang approach, Juranovic battle

Chelsea have endured a frustrating transfer window and the next few weeks look likely to follow a similar pattern.

Despite bringing in Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly, a number of Thomas Tuchel’s other targets have either gone elsewhere or remain at their clubs.

With three weeks left to run in the summer window, Chelsea still want recruits both at the back and in attack.

Here’s the latest transfer news and rumours involving Chelsea...

Wesley Fofana

Chelsea are readying a take-it-or-leave-it final bid to Leicester for Wesley Fofana, reports the Mail.

The Blues have already seen two offers rejected for Thomas Tuchel's long-time target, the second of which reached around £65million.

Leicester are desperate to keen Fofana, but know a world-record fee north of £80m could force their hand.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would only leave Barcelona this summer for Chelsea, reports the Telegraph.

The Blues are looking into bringing the former Arsenal striker back to the Premier League, but he is one of many on Tuchel's list and Aubameyang will wait for an approach.

The Gabon international is set for talks with Barca this week over if he has a future at the club just seven months after joining, then Chelsea and the player will decide on their next move.

Josip Juranovic

Chelsea face competition from Manchester United and Manchester City for Celtic right-back Josip Juranovic, reports football.london.

Juranovic is highly rated in Scotland and still has four years to run on his contract, so Celtic are under no pressure to sell.

Tuchel sees the 26-year-old as competition for Reece James despite club captain Cesar Azpilicueta recently signing a new contract.
