Leicester target Iago Falque move

Leicester City are interested in a summer deal for Torino’s Spanish forward Iago Falque to replace the outgoing Riyad Mahrez, say reports.

Algerian forward Mahrez departed the Foxes in a £60m deal to Manchester City earlier this week and a report in the Leicester Mercury, citing Tuttosport, say Falque is now on their radar.

The 28-year-old has also been linked with a move to Valencia – who have lost Nani, Andreas Pereira and Goncalo Guedes this summer – by Plaza Deportiva.

The Vigo-native had a very impressive campaign, scoring 14 goals with 10 assists in 40 competitive games for the Granata.

Torino are said to want in the region of €15m (£13m) for the former Tottenham, Genoa and Roma player who has also previously played in Spain across loan spells at Villarreal B, Rayo Vallecano and Almeria.
