Report: Leicester want Nigerian Ndidi

Leicester City are said to be mounting a bid of 16 million pounds 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 20 million pounds, which is Genk's reported asking price.
