Leicester looking for a defender
Leicester City had apparently made most of their transfer business early in the window, buying out Patson Daka, Boubakary Soumare and Ryan Bertrand in a bid to reach the Champions League places through a result between the top four in the Premier League.

In typical Leicester fashion, all three transfers were smart purchases, with the club spending a total outlay of around £ 35m.
However, they suffered a setback in the preseason when, during a preseason friendly against Villareal, young defender Wesley Fofana was carried off on a stretcher with a broken leg.
Wesley Fofana says on Instagram that he has fractured his fibula and is still awaiting a final diagnosis.

The injury leaves the lightweight club at the heart of the defense, and Daniel Amartey and Wilfried Ndidi have since been asked to replace part of the preseason.
Foxes bite by Vestergaard
One answer to his crisis could be Yannick Vestergaard of Southampton. The Danish defender impressed Ralph Hassenhutl’s defense last season, despite the team’s poor performance throughout the season.
The offer has not yet been accepted as Southampton waits for more.

According to The athleticThe Foxes have made an initial offer for the defender, believed to be worth 15 million pounds. However, the report suggests that the south coast side holds 18 million pounds, even though the central has only 12 months to fulfill his contract at St Mary’s.
Additionally, Brendan Rodgers will reportedly have to fight players like Wolves, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham for the signing of defenders, which could make a deal even more difficult to strike.
With Leicester starting their season on Saturday, expect a move on this later this week.
