Leicester City hope to add Sampdoria star and Arsenal target Dennis Praet to their ranks after landing Youri Tielemans, Sky Sports report.
Belgian playmaker Praet was linked with a switch to Arsenal; however, the 25-year-old star seems more likely to join Valencia.
In spite of Praet’s move to Los Murcielagos seeming likely, Brendan Rodgers’ outfit hope to be dark horses and persuade him to the Premier League.
The club have already spent more than £70m this summer. Although, the Midlands club’s aspirations of breaking into the Top 7 are evidenced by their vast spending.
The Gunners, who had the player on trial as a youngster, seemed the more possible destination; however, a switch from Italy to Spain seems more likely.
The Italians could make an excellent profit from any sale of Dennis. He moved to Sampdoria from Anderlecht three seasons ago for €8 million. However, the Serie A outfit rejected a £49 million offer from Arsenal the previous month.
AC Milan are another team keen on signing Praet. According to the player’s representative, Martin Riha, Rossoneri have been impressed by the midfielder’s displays.
“Everybody knows what Giampaolo thinks of Dennis. For now, I can’t say anything else,” Marin said.
“AC Milan is an important brand, it’s a big name. But there are also other clubs that want to sign him, especially abroad, they’ve already shown their interest.”
It’s unknown where Dennis will end up by the end of this transfer market; however, Martin Riha admitted that a decision will soon be made.
