Leicester linked with Chelsea midfield duo

Cambiasso was offered a new contract at the King Power Stadium before the end of last season after playing a starring role in the club’s charge to Premier League safety.

However, despite the appointment of Claudio Ranieri as the club’s new manager, the Argentine is yet to commit his future to the club and looks increasingly likely to seek a new challenge.

Leicester have had an offer accepted by Caen for Kante, but the 24-year-old is seemingly reluctant to join the East Midlands club and is said to retain hope of a move to Marseille, despite Caen ruling out an agreement with their Ligue 1 rivals.

Leicester have also been linked with Nice midfielder Nampalys Mendy, but the Leicester Mercury claims the Foxes have also now enquired about signing Ake, 20, on loan from Chelsea, while the Daily Mail suggests it’s 23-year-old Romeu that Ranieri wants to sign for the season.
