Gazelec Ajaccio striker Fousseni Diabate has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Leicester City.
However, according to his agent, Leicester have started negotiations with the Ligue 2 outfit over a potential transfer in January.
Yacine Ayad told L'Equipe: "Leicester have started discussions between the clubs for Fousseni, but at this stage, there is nothing yet done so much.
"Gazelec have received other offers from Ligue 1 and abroad in the past few days."
Diabate has scored three goals in French football's second tier during the current campaign.
