Adam Nagy: Put in many key performances for Hungary during the Euros.

Leicester City are in talks with Ferencvaros over a possible deal for Hungary midfielder Adam Nagy, according to reports.

Nagy has attracted interest from the Premier League recently after several key performances during Euro 2016 for Hungary, helping them top Group F above Portugal, Austria and Iceland.

Over the weekend the Daily Star reported that the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Leicester were all said to be interested in the 21-year-old, but the Foxes are understood to be the front runners to acquire the player’s services after already holding talks over a deal.

The report also adds that the Nagy may be available for a cut-price deal with the player’s release clause believed to be as low as £2 million.

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri is looking to bolster his squad for the forthcoming season and the signing would present more welcome news for fans after the club reportedly agreed a deal for Nice midfielder Nampalys Mendy.

With the future of N’Golo Kante still uncertain, both players would certainly be welcome additions as the Foxes attempt to defend their Premier League crown.

Nagy has been dubbed as one of Europe’s top emerging talents over the last year thanks to his athleticism, comfort on the ball and eye for a pass.

The defensive midfielder has already won 11 caps after making his debut on the international stage against Northern Ireland 12 months ago.
