The Foxes have already rejected offers from Albion of up to £9million for the 23-year-old Ghana international wide man, who scored one goal in 24 Premier League appearances as Claudio Ranieri’s men lifted the title against all the odds last season.

Schlupp only signed a four-year deal at the King Power Stadium last summer, but the emergence of Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton has left him facing a season kicking his heels on the substitutes’ bench.

Ranieri is a fan of the player, but with West Brom appearing to match their valuation and offering him the opportunity of regular first-team football at the Hawthorns, it now looks like Leicester will not stand in his way should he want to move.
