Leicester City are keen on Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente but could miss out on the signing of Monaco ace Youri Tielemans.

It looks like being a huge summer for Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers as he looks to tinker with his squad after spending the last few months fully assessing it, and already the rumours are full on.

Tielemans has been a revelation while on loan with Leicester, who are keen to take him on a permanent deal, but interest from Manchester City has thrown a spanner in the works.

It has been claimed that Manchester City officials have already met with their counterparts at Monaco and have agreed a deal for the talented midfielder, which means Leicester will miss out.

Meanwhile, the Foxes are also being linked with Spurs star Llorente.

Llorente has chipped in with some crucial goals when Harry Kane has been forced to sit out through injury this season, but he is out of contract at the end of June and looks set to move on.

Leicester are keen but could face competition from West Ham United, Napoli and maybe even Barcelona.
