Leicester eyeing Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah

Leicester City are weighing up a bid for Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah.

Leicester are considering a move for Tah if they cannot agree a deal for Burnley's James Tarkowski.

Tarkowski is interested in joining Leicester, who attempted to sign him last summer, but the deal rests over whether Burnley can be persuaded to lower their valuation of the 27-year-old, who has less than two years left on his contract and turns 28 in November, says the Daily Mail.

Tah is a Germany international who developed into a key man for Leverkusen since moving from Hamburg five years ago.

Tah, 24, is well known by Leicester head of recruitment Lee Congerton, who worked at Hamburg from 2011-14.
