Chelsea FC are lining up an alternative transfer signing should a deal for Wesley Fofana fall through.

The man identified by the Chelsea hierarchy as an alternative is Bayer Leverkusen’s defender, Edmond Tapsoba.

Tapsoba is believed to fit the bill as regards the mould of defender Chelsea needs.

A fee of £34million is believed to be enough to price the Aubameyang away from Germany.

The player still has 4yrs left on his current Leverkusen contract which makes things interesting.

Chelsea have been locked in negotiations with Leicester City for Fofana for weeks now.

Their last bid, in the region of £70million, was rejected by Leicester many hours ago.

Sources confirm, though, that the London club are still very much interested in Fofana and will return with an improved bid soon.

However, if their overtures fail, Chelsea will be immediately ready to turn their attention to Tapsoba.
