Fofana left out of Chelsea UCL squad and his future gets decided; Everything we know

Fofana has been left out of the UCL squad for Chelsea as a result of the many new arrivals as at now in the club with the last person Enzo Fernandez taking up a good spot with the team.

In view of this, his future has been decided and it does not seem to go down very well with him the resultant of his future decision with Chelsea.

Despite that decision, Graham Potter opted to hand the Ivorian a 16-minute run out versus Fulham in the Premier League on Friday evening.

Although the game ultimately ended goalless, Fofana produced a lively cameo performance and almost netted the winner, only being denied by a goal bound block.

With the 20-year-old being named in the squad ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, it appears that Potter is ready to place trust in one of the fringe newcomers to the group.

Nevertheless, the potential lack of game time for Fofana has reportedly led to interest from Turkish giants Galatasaray, with the transfer window still open in that country.

However, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the relevant parties have not been holding discussions regarding a potential transfer.

Romano adds that Galatasaray are more interested in securing a deal for Nicolo Zaniolo with the versatile attacker keen on departing Roma.

Okan Buruk’s side currently hold a nine-point lead at the top of the Super Lig standings, an advantage which will stay in place this weekend after two earthquakes devastated southern parts of the country.

Monday’s fixtures have already been postponed and Galatasaray’s next match had been due to be played at Gaziantep FK, but that will almost certainly be rescheduled with the city close to the epicentre of the two natural disasters.
