Come what may over the next month, Leicester City will be busy in the transfer market. According to France Football, Paris Saint-Germain have thrown their hat in the ring for one of the Foxes' most sought-after talents, midfield crusher N'Golo Kanté. 

France's most popular football magazine has the Parc des Princes side paying out Kanté's buyout clause of 25 million. A good piece of business for both sides. 

What will Leicester City do to beef up their midfield? With Riyad Mahrez running out of gas and Shinji Okazaki hardly the most proficient of goalscorers, Josip Ilicic of Fiorentina could be a vital cog in the machine. 

We revealed a few months ago that Paulo Sousa considers the Slovenian to be an important member of his midfield, but is amenable to parting with him, too. 

With 13 goals this season, the 28-year-old has bounced back over the last 15 months, after a long struggle with inconsistency.

Alfredo Pedulla' reveals, moreover, that the Foxes are in the hunt for another young talent from the Balkans. After adding (and dropping!) Andrej Kramaric, Gary Lineker's home team could shop in Croatia once more, having expressed an interest in Tino-Sven Susic, he of the freakishly talented uncle, Safet Susic.
