Leicester ahead of Man Utd for Monaco wing-back Ballo-Toure


Leicester City are closing on a deal for Monaco wing-back Fode Ballo-Toure.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers wants the 23-year-old after England left-back Ben Chilwell left for Chelsea in a £50million deal.

The Blues themselves previously had eyes on Ballo-Toure, who shone with Ligue 1 side Monaco last season.

Manchester United were also among the Paris-born defender’s admirers, says The Sun.

Reports in France now claim Leicester officials have begun talks for the eight-cap former France Under-21 international.

Monaco are said to want £18m for Ballo-Toure – a fee well within the King Power club’s grasp following Chilwell’s sale.
