Leicester fall short of Praet's valuation

Leicester fall short of Praet's valuation Leicester City are currently falling short of Sampdoria’s valuation for Dennis Praet. Recent reports suggested that the Foxes had made an opening offer worth €20 million for the playmaker, whose performances in Serie A in the past season have earned him interest from elsewhere. However, according to Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, the Foxes’ first bid was, in fact, worth €18 million along with additional bonuses, which has been deemed insufficient by Sampdoria. © Paolo Rattini/Getty Images Sport Paolo Rattini/Getty Images Sport Twitter: #Leicester have offered €18M plus bonuses for Dennis #Praet, but #Sampdoria want €25M to sell him.

Leicester City have reportedly made an offer to sign Dennis Praet from Sampdoria.

According to claims from Il Secolo XIX, as cited by Italian news outlet Calciomercato, the Foxes have opened the bidding with a move worth in the region of €20 million for the playmaker.

Praet enjoyed a strong campaign with Sampdoria last term, and as a consequence of his consistently impressive displays, numerous clubs are understood to be in the race for his signature.

La Liga outfit Valencia had reportedly entered advanced negotiations with the Serie A club over a possible deal for the Belgian, but it seems Leicester are making a late swoop for his signature.

With James Maddison available and having already recruited Ayoze Perez, who can operate in the hole, it comes as somewhat surprising to see the Foxes linked with a swoop for another player in the attacking midfield role.

However, Leicester are understood by Il Secolo XIX to be in the hunt for Praet’s signature, along with AC Milan and Arsenal.

Man United reportedly bid £45 million for Maguire alternative.
Manchester United have reportedly made a £45 million bid for Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic as they look for alternatives to Leicester’s Harry Maguire. The Mirror say that reports in Italy claim that United have bid for the Serbian defender, as they look to strengthen their defence ahead of the new Premier League season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have been chasing Harry Maguire for a while now, but Leicester have remained firm that the defender is not for sale.
