Leicester City are ready to buy a new centre-back to boost their Premier League campaign.
According to Sky Sports, Leicester will accelerate their plans to bring in a new centre-back after Wesley Fofana’s horror injury against Villarreal.
Fofana is expected to be out for a significant period of the new season after fracturing his fibula.
The Foxes also have Jonny Evans doubtful for their season opener, so need cover, but are mindful of the future situation when everyone returns to full fitness.
Therefore, loan options are most likely to be explored and the club are expected to discuss potential targets today.
