Leicester want Nigerian Ndidi - report

Cape Town - Leicester City are said to be mounting a bid of £16m for Genk and Nigeria international midfielder Wilfred Ndidi.

The 19-year-old did not miss a game last season for Genk, netting four goals in 38 matches and has played every minute of every match this season.

With a growing reputation in Belgium, it appears that the Nigerian international could be set to play in a higher-profile league.

Reports are claiming that it could be with England Premier League club Leicester City.

The struggling defending champions are reportedly looking for an adequate replacement for N'Golo Kante, who departed for Chelsea.

French midfielder Nampalys Mendy was supposed to have filled Kante's boots, but has barely featured due to injury.

The Foxes are said to be hoping to do a deal in January, although they may have to pay up to £20m, which is Genk's reported asking price.
