But any fans getting excited about a possible move to North London were quickly put back in their place as the centre-back quashed any rumours.

The injured Frenchman, close pals with Arsenal’s William Saliba, shared a written statement on Twitter which said: “OK mates. I have been tricked by some former friends wearing an Arsenal jersey.

“I played a football game (as coach I cannot run) with some friends and at the end we exchanged jerseys.

“I have been photographed in, what I thought, was my private sphere.

“I had obviously no thinking that what was a friendly game and joke will end up in social networks.

“I feel sorry for our fans and angry against the guys that have seized the opportunity to make this bad buzz.

“Sorry for all Arsenal friends, I have strictly no problem with the red but only the blue is in my heart.”

He captioned the post: “I’m not a good coach we lost 20 to 5.”

Fofana enjoyed a stunning debut season at Leicester following his £36.5million switch from Saint-Etienne last summer.

Due to Caglar Soyuncu’s injury woes, he was thrown straight into the first team under Brendan Rodgers and totalled 38 appearances across all competitions.

That included some while fasting for Ramadan before a fine performance at the heart of defence as Leicester won the FA Cup.

Surprisingly, he was overlooked for the PFA Young Player of the Year but did pick up the Foxes version of the award.

However, a hamstring pull suffered on the final day of the season ruled him out of the knockout rounds of France’s Under-21 Euros campaign.

Manchester United have also been linked with making a swoop for the young defender.

But Leicester have no intention or need to sell the rising star as Rodgers hopes to secure a top-four Premier League finish and go on a Europa League run.
