Chelsea are unlikely to sign AC Milan winger Rafael Leao after their agreement to sign Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig.

The Blues recently agreed a deal to sign Nkunku next summer. The Frenchman will join them for a reported fee of around €70 million.

Milan's Leao is another player that has been linked with a transfer, but Calciomercato claim that they are no longer keen on him.

The Blues are reluctant to meet Milan's €100m asking price for the Portuguese and they are instead looking to sign Molde's David Datro Fofana.

Fofana has been hugely impressive in Norway with 28 goal contributions this year. The Ivorian has been dubbed as the new Didier Drogba.

The youngster is not being considered as a first-team regular, but rather as someone, who could develop over the next couple of seasons.

The Blues are set to beat Brighton & Hove Albion to the signing of the highly-rated young striker from Molde. He could join them next month.
