Deeney attracts Leicester interest

Watford captain Troy Deeney is attracting interest from Leicester City ahead of the summer transfer window. The 27-year-old has been a key performer for the Hornets who have had a decent return to the Premier League.

Deeney started off the season in fine fashion as he formed a great partnership with Odion Ighalo upfront for the Hornets.

However, his form has slumped since the turn of the year, and this has placed some part in the club's fall to the bottom half of the league.

The Sun says the English champions are eager to bring in a new striker to their ranks as they head for a journey in the Champions League.

The report goes on to state that Deeney is the top priority for manager Claudio Ranieri, given his excellent physique and goalscoring capabilities.

Deeney has netted 13 goals in 41 appearances for the Hornets this term.
