Leicester City are reportedly keen to use some of the funds raised from the sale of Harry Maguire on Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer.

Leicester City have reportedly identified Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer as a potential replacement for Harry Maguire.

After weeks of speculation, Maguire is said to be closing in on a switch to Manchester United, who are prepared to pay £80m for the England international.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers must now try to bring in reinforcements before the end of the summer window, and it appears that a familiar face is on his radar.

According to The Mirror, Rodgers is prepared to pay in the region of £15m in order to secure a reunion with Ajer.

The 21-year-old has established himself as arguably Celtic's most prized asset after costing just £500,000 ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.

The Norway international has made 83 appearances for the Glasgow giants, with most of them coming under Rodgers.

Ajer still has three years left on his contract, leaving Celtic in a strong position with just five days left of the window.
