Besiktas eyeing Leicester attacker Fousseni Diabate

Besiktas are eyeing Leicester City attacker Fousseni Diabate.

Turkish media sources say Leicester are holding out for €3m for the winger, but Besiktas are keen to get him for €2m.

The Malian international, who joined the Foxes for €2m in January 2018 , impressed on loan at Turkish Super Lig side Sivasspor last season, spending the latter half of the campaign on loan at the Sivas Stadium.

Diabate is contracted until 2022 at the King Power Stadium but he is likely to move on this summer, with new boss Brendan Rodgers - who replaced Claude Puel in February - keen to recruit his own players to play on the wings, says the Leicester Mercury.
