Leicester in advanced negotiations for Nampalys Mendy

Premier League side Leicester City are in advanced negotiations with OGC Nice for the transfer of their captain and defensive midfielder Nampalys Mendy.

Mendy, who is under contract until 2017 with Les Aiglons, have already agreed to personal terms with Leicester, who he appears to be convinced to join by his former boss Claudio Ranieri, one year on from rejecting the Foxes before the Italian manager signed N’Golo Kanté, who appears to be on his way out of LCFC.

The Premier League champions have made an offer of between €10m and €15m for the player. Fee negotiations are ongoing between Nice and Leicester.

West Ham, Wolfsburg and Sunderland are all also interested in the player, but Mendy is convinced by the Leicester project.
