Should the French midfielder leave the King Power Stadium, it will leave a massive hole in the engine room of Claudio Ranieri’s side.

However, Wanyama is seen as the perfect replacement and he could available for sale given that he has turned down a new contract offer with the Saints.

Yet if Leicester are to land Wanyama, they will have to beat off some stiff competition from Tottenham Hotspur, who have been strongly linked with the player.

The Star on Sunday claims that Wanyama’s price would be in the region of £25-million.
