​Leicester set deadline to complete deal for Lille midfielder Soumare

Leicester City have set a deadline to conclude the transfer of Boubakary Soumare from Lille.

The Premier League side are eager to sign the midfielder but are finding negotiations more difficult than they imagined.

According to Leicestershire Live, a deal of roughly £20 million is likely to be thrashed out for the 22-year-old.

Soumare would sign a five year deal with Leicester.

Lille-based source La Voix Du Nord claims a transfer should be done within one and a half weeks, around the time Leicester players return for pre-season training.
