Cashed up Leicester go again for Norwich winger Brady, Burnley defender Keane

Leicester City are set to make renewed bids for both Robbie Brady and Michael Keane.

The Premier League champions sold star midfielder N'Golo Kante to Chelsea on the weekend and are set to use the £30million from that deal to bring in some key transfer targets.

Claudio Ranieri has already had bids for Norwich City winger Brady and Burnley defender Keane turned down but it is determined to land the pair and will return with fresh proposals.

Norwich reportedly placed a £20m price tag on Republic of Ireland international Brady earlier this month but the Foxes remain keen.

Also on Ranieri's radar is Clarets centre-back Keane who is seen as the perfect player to keep captain Wes Morgan and the experienced Robert Huth on their toes.

The promoted Lancashire outfit rejected a £15m offer at the beginning of July but Leicester are intent on strengthening their title-winning squad and have retained a significant interest in the 23-year-old former Manchester United youngster.
