Puel: I really wanted Golovin at Leicester

Former Leicester City boss Claude Puel admits he was keen on AS Monaco midfielder Alex Golovin.

Puel revealed he was considering the Russia international when in charge of the Foxes.

He told Sport-Express: "I watched Golovin for a long time when I was the head coach of Leicester.

"I saw him as a very interesting player, I really wanted to sign him. Even before he moved to Monaco.

"But after the successful World Cup, top clubs came for him, he had different offers, but he chose Monaco."
