Leicester approach Man Utd for Luke Shaw

Leicester City are eyeing Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw.

The Leicester Mercury says Leicester see Shaw as a long-term replacement for Ben Chilwell.

Chilwell, 23, has become one of the country's best defenders during recent seasons at the King Power, and has been heavily linked with a move to Frank Lampard's Chelsea.

Planning for a potential big money departure of Chilwell, Leicester will look to 24-year-old Shaw to fill the gap.

The Foxes have asked United about the England international, in order to explore the possibility of a deal.

United paid a lofty £30million fee to Southampton for Shaw in 2014, but the youngster failed to live up to the high expectations laid at his door.
