Leicester City are reportedly considering a January move for Nigeria international, Emmanuel Dennis, who is priced at £20 million.

The Club Brugge striker scored twice in the Champions League against Real Madrid last month.

According to the Mirror, Leicester manager, Brendan Rodgers, is a big fan of the Nigerian and believes he can provide competition up front for Jamie Vardy.

Dennis, so far, has three goals in nine league games in Belgium’s top flight.

The report also claims that Rodgers is considering a move for Real Sociedad defender, Diego Llorente.

Llorente, who joined Sociedad in a £5m deal back in the summer of 2017 and has a release clause of £45m, has also attracted interest from London sides, West Ham and Tottenham.

The Foxes currently sit third in the top-flight, just two points behind Manchester City in second and six above Arsenal in fifth.

Leicester will be gunning for victory as they host Arsenal on Saturday evening to maintain their push for top-four finish.
