Super Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi is reportedly set to be replaced at Leicester City with Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma.
In the event the Nigerian does head elsewhere in the transfer window, the Foxes are reportedly “prioritising” a move for Bissouma.
According to Get French Football News, the Foxes will prioritise targeting Bissouma if they lose Ndidi.
Brighton are said to want about 35m euros for the 24-year-old, who has two years left on his contract.
Arsenal were linked with the Mali international in January, but a summer switch was always deemed the more likely.
Ndidi’s situation is said to be viewed as separate to the expected arrival of Boubakary Soumaré by the Foxes’ board, with the Lille man not seen as a replacement for the Nigerian.
RB Leipzig midfielder Christopher Nkunku is another player City are interested in as per same report, but he wants to remain in the Champions League
