Leicester City will reportedly rival Wolfsburg and Lyon to sign Bournemouth's Arnaut Danjuma, who has expressed his desire to play in one of Europe's top five leagues.

Leicester City have reportedly set their sights on signing Bournemouth winger Arnaut Danjuma, but could face competition from Wolfsburg and Lyon.

Danjuma was an important attacking threat for the Cherries last season, as he scored 17 goals and provided eight assists in 37 appearances, but his two goals in the Championship playoff semi-finals were not enough to get his side to Wembley.

Lyon and Leicester can offer Danjuma Europa League football next season, while Wolfsburg can gain the upper hand in the persuasion of European football as they qualified for the 2021-22 Champions League.

According to Voetbalzone, the Foxes could see Danjuma as a direct replacement for Demarai Gray, who left for Bayer Leverkusen in January, but the competition for his services is saturated as Southampton and West Ham United have also been linked with a move for Danjuma.

As for French side Lyon, Danjuma's arrival would be welcomed as a replacement for the exit-bound Memphis Depay, who will see out his contract and leave on a free transfer this summer.

The Dutch international arrived at the Vitality Stadium in 2019, and has scored 17 goals and provided eight assists in 52 appearances for the club.
