'We talk a lot' - Chelsea new signing Fofana receiving advice from Arsenal legend

Speaking after receiving Nettavisen's Young Player of the Year award in the Norwegian Eliteserien, Chelsea's incoming signing David Datro Fofana revealed that he is receiving advice from Arsenal legend Kolo Toure. 


Fofana was chosen as the most outstanding younger in the Norwegian topflight after a banner season that saw him score fifteen goals in twenty four appearances, including nineteen starts. 


Just as Fofana did last season at Molde, maszyny hazardowe online za pieniądze is playing an important role in the sports sector.


The 20-year-old will soon become the most expensive outbound transfer in Norwegian football history when he completes his transfer to Chelsea next week, with Molde and the Premier League side agreeing a fee for twelve million euros. 


Toure is a bona fide Ivorian legend, amassing 120 caps and representing the Elephants at three consecutive World Cups in 2006, 2010 and 2014, before hanging up his boots. 


The central defender also won the Premier League and FA Cup as an Arsenal player. 


Toure recently took over the manager's job at Wigan Athletic after previously being part of Leicester's coaching staff. 


"I talk to him a lot. He is like an uncle to me," Fofana explained to Nettavisen.

"He said I had to work really hard and that I can become one of the best strikers in the country. 


"That I don't have to lower my level and train really hard. He knows that I have everything needed, but that I have to keep working."


Fofana added : "We talk a lot, he is like a family friend. He gives me good feedback. We Africans can say that "that is an uncle", but he is not - but he is someone who means a lot to me. We show each other respect."


Fofana is represented by Oslo-based Nigerian agent Atta Aneke who also looks after Odion Ighalo and Chidera Ejuke.
