According to a report from Sky Sports, Leicester have agreed a £19 million fee with Sampdoria for Dennis Praet, according to Hitc.com reports.
The Foxes have been chasing the winger for the past month or so, and it seems as though Brendan Rodgers might finally get his man.
The 25-year-old central midfielder is a solid operator, but his stats are rather underwhelming, with just four goals and six assists in 106 appearances for Sampdoria. And Leicester will surely expect more of a return on their money from the Belgian.
Sky Sports (Live transfer feed 06:46) have claimed that the east Midlands outfit have now agreed a £19 million fee to sign Praet.
Much is expected of Leicester this season, in spite of the fact that they’ve sold key defender Harry Maguire.
The Foxes have brought in Youri Tielemans, Ayoze Perez and James Justin for in excess of £70 million.
And the addition of Praet along with maybe another established centre-back would set them up quite nicely for the season ahead.
