English champions Leicester City are keen on making a summer approach Rennes sensation Ousmane Dembele. The 18-year-old has stolen the show in the French league through his impressive showing for the Ligue 1 outfit.

It had been recently claimed that the young Frenchman had agreed to join Borussia Dortmund after the German side matched his £4.2m get-out clause.

However, ESPN brings a fresh view to the story with the Foxes being the latest side to be interested with the player's signature.

It is added that the youngster has no clause in his existing deal, and Rennes would be reluctant to offload their asset for anything less than £23m this summer.

League rivals Tottenham Hotspur have also been credited with interest for the France under-21 international.
