Leicester look to strengthen defence as two centre-backs are targeted

Leicester City have made a move to sign two Premier League central defenders.

The 2015/16 Premier League champions are looking to strengthen their defence and according to the Daily Mail, they have identified Hull City defender Harry Maguire as a potential signing.

It is thought they have agreed a deal worth around £17m for the relegated defender, with £12m to be paid up front and the rest in add-ons.

They are also thought to have had a £10m bid for former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans by West Bromwich Albion

Evans moved to West Brom back in 2015 in a deal worth around £6m, and is highly rated by Tony Pulis.

Leicester City need to strengthen their ageing back line, especially considering the injury problems faced by club captain Wes Morgan.
