According to rumours, Southampton are “bracing themselves” for a bid from Leicester City for defender Jannick Vestergaard. Following Wesley Fofana’s major injury, City are looking for a centre-back in the last stages of the season.

After breaking his leg and dislocating his ankle in a pre-season friendly against Villarreal last week, Brendan Rodgers stated after the Community Shield that the Frenchman will be sidelined for at least six months.

According to sources in Italy, Leicester City has expressed interest in Inter Milan duo Stefan de Vrij and Marcelo Brozovic. Following Wesley Fofana’s catastrophic injury in last week’s friendly against Villarreal, City are on the search for a central defender before the transfer window closes.

After a second scan revealed ligament damage, Brendan Rodgers said the Frenchman will be out until 2022.
