Leicester City reportedly weigh up a move for Atalanta defender Timothy Castagne.

Leicester City are reportedly weighing up a move for Atalanta defender Timothy Castagne.

Th 24-year-old, whose current deal with the Italian outfit is set to expire at the end of the 2020-21 season, had registered one goal and two assists in 14 Serie A matches prior to the coronavirus suspension.

According to Sport/Foot, the Foxes are planning for the possible departure of Ricardo Pereira, and have identified Castagne as a potential replacement.

The report also claims that Leicester have no intention of selling Pereira, although his consistent performances for the former Premier League champions means that he is supposedly likely to garner interest from several clubs in the summer.

Castagne has netted eight times in 78 appearances for Atalanta since arriving from Belgian champions Genk in 2017.
