Ajax fullback targeted by Foxes

Reports coming out of Italy suggest Leicester City are close to signing Ajax star Nicolas Tagliafico as a possible alternative to Ben Chilwell – in a deal thought to be worth 40.5 million.

Brendan Rodgers is being proactive in his search as Chilwell continues to be heavily linked to several clubs, especially Chelsea.

Foxes fans would be sad to see him go but 27-year-old Tagliafico would be a worthy replacement, as his stats show him averaging a higher number of tackles, interceptions, and clearances per game.

He featured for Argentina in the 2018 world cup and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League just over a year ago.
