Leicester ready to sell two former Wolves transfer targets Vestergaard and Soumare

Leicester City are reportedly willing to listen to offers for Jannik Vestergaard and Boubakary Soumare – two players who were previously linked with Wolves.

The duo signed for the Foxes last summer for a combined total of close to £40 million.

There was a lot of excitement about their signings.

Soumare, in particular, was seen as a real coup having been linked with some top clubs around Europe.

But the duo have evidently not really impressed in 2021/22, with the Daily Mail now reporting the club will listen to offers for both.

There is no mention of any asking price. It is simply stated that the club will sell if a suitable offer arrives.

Prior to joining Leicester, Wolves had been linked with both players.

Foot Mercato reported in July 2021 that Wolves were among a few Premier League clubs to have sounded out the 23-year-old.

And a month later, The Athletic reported that Wanderers were rivalling Leicester for Vestergaard, with the Foxes making a £15 million bid at the time.

It will be interesting to see if there is any desire from Wolves to sign either player given they are both now on the transfer list.

Wolves do have need to strengthen both at the back and in central midfield.

If it’s a choice between the two, Wolves should be seeing if there is any chance to do a deal for Soumare.

Quite a number of Leicester fans on social media have already been expressing their worry about Soumare leaving and exploding at another club. They seem to think Brendan Rodgers hasn’t given him enough chances.

Depending on what the asking price is, Wolves should consider making a move for the dynamic Frenchman.

At Wolves, he would probably be a regular starter. Especially if Ruben Neves left.

And it would be good to have a box-to-box type player like him in the starting XI.
