​Leicester up the ante in race for Lille midfielder Soumare

Leicester City are making a significant push to sign Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumaré.

The France U21 star is seen as one of the best prospects in his age group in the country.

Soumare has a contract that runs out in 2022, and is valued at roughly £30 million.

And according to the Guardian, Leicester believe they can fend off interest from other clubs to secure his signature this summer.

Soumare has been linked with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and AC Milan.
