Leicester show interest in Keane

Leicester are reportedly set to step up their interest in Everton’s Michael Keane should Harry Maguire leave the club this summer.

The Foxes are believed to have a long-standing interest in former Burnley central back Keane, who has established himself as a mainstay of the Everton defence this season.

Indeed, the 26-year-old’s impressive form has seen him earn a recall to the England set-up and it is the future of his international colleague Maguire at Leicester that could determine if the Foxes make their move.

Maguire, who has previously been linked with Manchester United, has now emerged as a potential transfer target for Manchester City, who are in the market for a new central defender to replace outgoing captain Vincent Kompany.

Should City secure the services of Maguire, then Leicester could well make their move for Keane, who is unlikely to command anywhere near the £75million that the Foxes could end up receiving from City.
