Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri is said to be weighing up a move for Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The Italian, who is leading the Foxes to an unprecedented league title, is on the look out for a new enforcer with PFA Player of the Year nominee N'Golo Kante heavily tipped to join an elite European club next season.

According to The Mirror, the Premier League leaders are unlikely to come in the way of Kante, should he decide to seek a fresh challenge in the summer.

It is added that the club have already lined up Kenyan international Wanyama as a potential replacement for the 25-year-old.

Wanyama, who has one year left on his existing deal, is eager to play for a Champions League side next term.
