Chelsea agree deal to sign £8m Fofana from Molde

CHELSEA have announced they are about to complete a deal to sign young striker David Datro Fofana from Norwegian club Molde.

The Premier League club confirmed the imminent arrival of the Ivorian today.

“Chelsea FC has reached a pre-agreement with Molde FK for the transfer of David Datro Fofana,” the club stated on their official website today.

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

The deal is believed to be worth £8m, with Chelsea said to be long-term admirers of the youngster.

Fofana is seen as a wonderkid in Norway, having joined Erling Haaland’s former club Molde from Ivorian side Abidjan City FC in February 2021.

He has registered 24 goals and 10 assists in 65 appearances for Molde.
