Leicester City look to bolster their squad for their second season back in the Premier League with the £8 million signing of N’Golo Kante.

Ouest France understands that two clubs are in the running for the Malian, who helped Caen to promotion into Ligue 1 in 2013-14.

The Foxes are uncertain about the future of Argetine midfielder Esteban Cambiasso, and could turn to the 24-year-old as cover.

However, there is yet to be a formal bid made for Kante by any club, including Marseille, who eye him as a replacement for fellow African Giannelli Imbula who is set to join Inter Milan.

Kante has never played outside of France in his career to date, having made 38 appearances in midfield last season.
