Foxes of Leicester analyse the most recent Leicester City news and hearsay. This includes the latest report from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. The Italian is covering Chelsea's admiration for his fellow countryman and Foxes Championship mastermind Enzo Maresca. The Blues unceremoniously and abruptly sacked their own manager Mauricio Pochettino after a relatively successful season, albeit an underwhelming one for some discerning CFC fans.

Meanwhile, FoL also take a look at the claim that the east Midlands outfit are vying with relegated Luton Town for Antwerp midfielder Pierre Dwomoh. Is he worth an investment?

Leicester City supposedly chase Pierre Dwomoh - FoL's verdict

If gossip is to be believed, Leicester are in the market for a midfield operator. If other reports are accurate, the Foxes are willing to sell one or two of their most valuable assets. The latter update certainly didn't impress the Blue Army, yet there are Profit and Sustainability Rules to satisfy. Let's hope it's not tenacious but adroit footballer Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall who leaves the King Power.

Dennis Praet has wasted no time in confirming his departure from Filbert Way. And who can blame him after a mixed spell with LCFC?! There was always a player in there but he's been terribly unlucky with injuries and managers. That exit means there is a place in the squad.

Could Pierre Dwomoh be the man to fill the gap at City? Well, the 19-year-old certainly seems confident from the small amount of footage I've seen of him. His confidence as a No.8 is intriguing; whether the talent would translate to the Premier League via the Jupiler Pro League is another question.

This prospective acquisition continues Leicester's long modern track record of signing and scouting Belgians. Of course, Dwomoh can play as a more attacking option as well, which fits Enzo Maresca's mentality of getting midfielders into opposition penalty areas.

Luton are following Dwomoh, too. Therefore City must pay the €3million promptly if they truly want the Belgium Under-17 star.

Fabrizio Romano on Chelsea's apparent pursuit of Leicester City head coach Enzo Maresca and Foxes of Leicester's view

The west London side's ownership and sporting directors have reportedly discussed appointing Maresca. The ex-Manchester City coach has an £8m release clause, says Romano.

Gianluca Di Marzio suggests that the 44-year-old tops the managerial wishlist at Stamford Bridge. This may be an exiting campaign for Maresca if he remains at Leicester. However, a call from Chelsea may be too hard for the former West Bromwich Albion man to refuse.
