Leicester Identify Replacement For Man Utd-bound Defender


Former Premier League champions Leicester City have identified a replacement for outgoing defender Harry Maguire according to the latest reports emanating from the British media.

Harry Maguire is closing in on a big money move to Manchester United and the Foxes have already lined up the replacement for the England international centre back.

According to the Daily Star, Leicester City are preparing a £45m bid for Brighton and Hove Albion defender Lewis Dunk.

English defender Dunk and Shane Duffy have formed a potent centre back partnership at the heart of the Brighton and Hove Albion for the better part of the last five years.

The two centre backs were part of the Brighton team that gained promotion to the Premier League in 2017.

Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy have been crucial for the Seagulls in the last two years.

Dunk would definitely be a perfect replacement for Harry Maguire who’s expected to complete a world-record transfer to Manchester United this month.

The Red Devils have agreed on a transfer fee of £80m for Harry Maguire with a medical scheduled for this week.

Harry Maguire would be the most expensive defender in history when he completes his move ahead of £75m Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk.
