Manchester United have allegedly made contact with fellow Premier League club Leicester City about signing Wesley Fofana.
The 20-year-old French defender has been a revelation for the Foxes this term after signing from the Ligue 1 outfit Saint Etienne for £36.5m last September.
And Wesley’s partnership with Jonny Evans has helped Brendan Rodgers’ men remain in contention for a UEFA Champions League spot.
According to a recent report from French source Foot Mercato, his form has not gone unnoticed by Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who would like to partner with the England international Harry Maguire with the highly-rated France U21 star.
The report says that Solskjaer is not convinced that Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly have the qualities to compliment Harry at the back.
United are understood to have made initial contact with the Foxes ace, but the next step could be complicated.
The King Power Stadium outfit are believed to want a similar fee to the £80 million United paid for Maguire in the summer transfer window of 2019.
That kind of figure might be out of reach for the money counters at the Theatre of Dreams due to the current financial climate because of coronavirus.
