Leicester in advanced talks with Lille AND Soumare over summer switch

Leicester City have stepped up their push to sign Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare.

Foot Mercato says Leicester are in advanced talks to sign the youngster, despite competition from across Europe.

Everton and Wolves have made enquiries, along with AC Milan.

A Lille source says negotiations between the two clubs have progressed positively, as has Leicester's talks with Soumare's camp. His LOSC contract expires next summer.
