Harry Maguire is reportedly still hoping he can finalise his move to Manchester United before the summer transfer window deadline tomorrow.
However, according to Sky sources, United’s move for Jerome Boateng is also in the pipeline as the Foxes turned down an offer of £60million for Maguire.
And it seems the 2015/16 Premier League champions could be preparing for life without Maguire, with reports emerging that Leicester are on the verge of signing two centre-backs.
Croatia Under-21 international Filip Benkovic had a medical on Monday ahead of a £13.5m move from Dinamo Zagreb.
The Foxes are also close to striking a deal worth £22.5m including add-ons for Freiburg’s Turkish defender Caglar Soyuncu.
Soyuncu, 22, was linked with a move to Arsenal earlier this summer but the Gunners were put off by the German club’s £35m valuation.
However, Leicester would like to keep Maguire even if they can get both deals wrapped up.
They have Wes Morgan, Yohan Benalouane and Jonny Evans, who arrived at the King Power Stadium this summer.
