Leicester close to Praet deal

Leicester City are reportedly close to a €20m deal with Sampdoria for Dennis Praet, who had also been linked with Milan.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the two clubs are on the verge of an agreement for €20m plus bonuses.

It had been rumoured yesterday that Leicester were offering Rachid Ghezzal plus cash for Praet.

However, HLN in Belgium suggest it's worked out at €26m cash, but he has not yet agreed personal terms.

“Milan or anyone else can have Praet when they ask us for him and hand over the money. They’d need to pay us €26m,” Samp President Massimo Ferrero had told reporters on July 29.

The Rossoneri seem to have pulled out, as they’d only go in for Praet if Franck Kessie was sold first.
