Leicester City are in the hunt to sign Sassuolo attacker Jeremie Boga during this summer's transfer window, according to a report.

Leicester City are reportedly preparing to battle a host of clubs for the signature of Sassuolo attacker Jeremie Boga during this summer's transfer window.

The 24-year-old has scored four times and contributed two assists in 27 appearances at club level this term, while he has 18 goals and seven assists in 89 outings for his Italian side in all competitions.

According to Calciomercato, Atalanta BC, Napoli, Lyon, Marseille and Villarreal all want to sign the attacker, who could be available for a fee between €30m (£25.8m) and €40m (£34.4m) in the upcoming market.

The report, though, claims that Leicester are firmly in the hunt for Boga and are in a strong financial position to compete for the Ivory Coast international.

Boga, who is out of contract at Sassuolo next summer, was at Chelsea between 2009 and 2018 but only made one first-team appearance before leaving Stamford Bridge.

Leicester are also allegedly preparing to battle Arsenal for the signature of Southampton's Ryan Bertrand.
