​Monaco close to signing Leicester flop Soumare

Monaco are closing in on a deal for Boubakary Soumare from Leicester City.

The Foxes secured Somare from Lille in Ligue 1 last summer, paying £20 million.

However, the 23-year-old has struggled in the Premier League and did not impress manager Brendan Rodgers.

According to The Athletic, Leicester are ready to sell, and that Monaco are in talks to bring him back to France.

Another report states that the Foxes are serious about signing Orkun Kokcu, who is linked to West Ham United and Arsenal.

He is also a midfielder, and may be seen as a replacement or Soumare.
