EXCLUSIVE: Leicester interested in signing Victor Wanyama as N’Golo Kante exit looms

However, the fact the Paris-born enforcer, a £5.6million buy from Caen 12 months ago, has a £20m release clause in his contract appears to make his exit inevitable.

Certainly, Foxes chief Claudio Ranieri is preparing for the worst as he steps up his search for someone capable of filling the Frenchman’s box-to-box role.

Kante was voted the club’s Players’ Player of the Year this season but his future could now lie away from the Midlands.

Leicester had a £15m offer for Sevilla’s former Stoke and Blackburn Rovers midfielder Steven N’Zonzi rejected last month and now they are looking at Wanyama.
