With star striker Jamie Vardy’s Leicester future still in doubt after it emerged he had been in talks with Arsenal, Leicester are said to be bracing themselves for further approaches.
Vardy travelled to France with the England squad ahead of Euro 2016 on Monday with an announcement on his decision still pending. Reports say that Leicester will make a counter offer in a bid to keep the 24-goal striker at the club.
A Vardy exit, however, could open the floodgates as a flurry of approaches are expected from across Europe for the stars of last season’s surprise Premier League winning team.
Reports suggest that a host of clubs including Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain are interested in France midfielder N’Golo Kante, while Riyad Mahrez is also said to be attracting attention from the Gunners and PSG.
Leicester City midfielder Andy King has played down the transfer talk, saying that even if Vardy and others decide to leave, the team spirit at the King Power stadium will not suffer.
"For Leicester, it is going to be a summer of speculation of incomings and outgoings. Nothing has happened yet and it will probably be a long transfer window but I don’t think it will affect the squad,” King said from France, where he is with the Wales squad.
"It is 25 players in a squad and, if one or two decide they want to go and play their football elsewhere, we wish them all the best. We want to keep our best players and hopefully add to that," he added.
