Leicester City will move for Basel attacker Mohamed Elyounoussi this summer as they look to replace Riyad Mahrez, according to a report.
Leicester City will reportedly move for Basel attacker Mohamed Elyounoussi this summer as they look to replace Riyad Mahrez, with the Algerian widely expected to move on.
Mahrez failed to engineer a move to Manchester City during the January transfer window, but it is thought that the attacker will depart the King Power Stadium in this summer's transfer window.
In March, former Sarpsborg 08 coach Ian Burchall claimed that Leicester had an interest in Elyounoussi, and according to ESPN, the Foxes will press ahead with a move ahead of the 2018-19 season.
The 23-year-old, who has also been linked with Bayer Leverkusen, scored 13 times and provided 17 assists in 44 appearances for Basel during the 2017-18 campaign.
Leicester confirmed the arrival of James Maddison from Norwich City on Wednesday afternoon.
