Robbie Brady: Norwich midfielder wanted by Leicester

Leicester are set to spend their N’Golo Kante windfall quickly by making improved bids for Norwich midfielder Robbie Brady and Burnley defender Michael Keane, according to reports.

The reigning champions are looking to boost their squad following the notable departure of N’Golo Kante to Chelsea.

The Mirror reports that the Foxes are set to try again to get their men having already had a £12million bid rejected for centre back Keane, while Irish star Brady has had a £20million price tag placed on him.

Both are seen as key players at their respective clubs and Leicester know they will have to splash the cash in order to get them.

Brady played a key part in Norwich’s season last year then scored the winner for the Republic of Ireland in the group game against Italy.

Former England Under-21 defender Keane was important in Burnley’s promotion campaign and looks to have a bright future.

The Foxes have made four signings so far this summer with Ron-Robert Zieler, Luis Hernandez, Nampalys Mendy and Ahmed Musa joining Claudio Ranieri’s squad.
