Leicester City are said to be interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak amidst Danny Drinkwater’s uncertain future at the King Power Stadium.
Danny Drinkwater has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea this summer and the Blues are already believed to have had a bid of around£32 million rejected for the Englishman.
However, it has been reported that an offer of around £40 million might be enough to convince Leicester to sell Drinkwater and the dynamic midfielder is also said to be looking to force a move after recently handing in a transfer request.
Amidst this speculation, it looks like Leicester have identified a potential replacement for Drinkwater in the form of Grzegorz Krychowiak and the Foxes are currently said to be pursuing the PSG midfielder.
The Pole made the move to Paris from Sevilla last season but failed to establish himself as a regular, featuring in only 19 appearances for the French giants last season.
With PSG needing to balance the books following the signing of Neymar for £200 million and also considering that Krychowiak is not among the first team regular, the Parisians might be tempted to recoup some money by selling the fringe players should the right offer arrive from Leicester City.
If indeed Krychowiak moves to Leicester before Thursday’s deadline, he will reunite with his former Sevilla teammate Vincente Iborra, with whom he formed a successful partnership in La Liga.
The swoop for Krychowiak will surely strengthen Leicester’s spine as they look to enjoy a positive season following a difficult campaign last term.
In order to get the deal done for the 27-year-old though, the Foxes might need to clear their deck by selling other of their fringe players at the middle of the park as they are cramped with midfielders in their squad
Leicester already possess the likes of Matty James, Andy King, Papy Mendy and Daniel Amartey at their disposal and a few of them will surely have to depart in order to make space for Krychowiak.
