Leicester join battle for Lille defender Gabriel

Leicester City have made a move for Lille defender Gabriel.

Le 10 Sport says Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers remains eager to find a replacement for Harry Maguire after his summer move to Manchester United.

And his search has led him to Brazilian defender Gabriel.

Rodgers feels the 22 year-old is a like-for-like replacement for Maguire and is prepared to compete for the Lille stopper's signature this summer.

With Arsenal and Everton also keen, LOSC are seeking at least €30m to sell Gabriel.
