Some fans and observers were beginning to believe that the Sensi switch was now doubtful as the market begins to accelerate before quickly winding up. Yet it seems as though Foxes recruitment - who never appear nervous when leaving culminating details to the last minutes, or seconds - will pull this one off.
Having a player join from Inter Milan and Serie A feels like a minor coup for presently Championship residing Leicester. At around 3pm on Thursday, an airplane touched down in from Italy; the midfielder was apparently aboard.
Now the King Power club aim to get Sensi's medical passed swiftly and other necessary actions taken to complete the signing. No problems are anticipated with an 11pm cut-off point.
Anderlecht have confirmed that Schmeichel isn't leaving; Forest have signed a separate goalkeeper, incidentally. Elsewhere, Royal Antwerp are the latest Praet admirers; the Belgian's LCFC status remains unclear.
And last but by no means least, Leicester have reportedly been scouting Nathan Zeze. The 18-year-old centreback is a Nantes player currently competing in Ligue 1. There are typically varying degrees of mixed results when Premier League teams add French league stars to their respective rosters.
According to Leicester Mercury, this would be a 'deal for the future' so to speak. The outlet also suggest that an agreement probably won't come until the summer, with a February transfer unlikely.
