Lille midfielder Soumare set to join Ndidi, Iheanacho at  ​Leicester City


Lille midfielder, Boubakary Soumare is on the verge of joining Nigerian players, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho at Leicester City this summer.

The all-action star, who played 32 games for Lille as they won Ligue 1 in France this past season, could cost the Foxes roughly £23 million.

Leicester may have to fend off competition to secure Soumare, as the Daily Mail reports that Premier League sides Wolves and Everton are also admirers of the midfielder.

However, Leicester being in the Europa League and having a long term interest in Soumare means he is likely to choose them as his next club.

Soumare is likely to play with Youri Tielemans in midfield next season, as Leicester hope to tie down the Belgian to a long term contract.
