Leicester City have reportedly made a lower than expected bid for Azzedine Ounahi. The Foxes are the leading club: here is all you need to know.

The King Power club have entered the transfer market with a point to make: they need creative, energetic, and ambitious signings to improve the side and push others to develop. The Foxes could do with defenders and wingers, although it seems they are also in for midfielders.

This is likely due to the impending losses of Papy Mendy, Youri Tielemans, and possible outgoings for Dennis Praet, Ayoze Perez, and of course the ever-present and nonsense rumours around James Maddison. There will be space in midfield opening up at some point or another.

Leicester City leading the pack

According to the Daily Mail, the East Midlands club have put in a leading bid of around £20m, although I would expect there would also be some form of add-on to such a paltry offer. Rumours may or may not be accurate, but we at least know the Foxes have a genuine interest in the player: other sources have also made similar remarks.
