Report: Leicester to complete signing of Napoli's Gokhan Inler today

Pre Kick Off

Gokhan Inler will reportedly leave Napoli for Premier League outfit Leicester City.

Leicester are set to complete the signing of Gokhan Inler today, according to TMW.

The Switzerland international has been strongly linked with the Foxes over the past month and last week it was claimed by The Daily Mail he would make a decision on his future within 48 hours.

The decision now appears to be made, and TMW reports that the 31-year old will sign a three-year deal with Leicester today, after all parties reached agreement.

West Ham are also believed to have submitted an offer, according to the Daily Mail, but it now looks like the King Power Stadium will be the combative midfielder’s new home.

Leicester have made a storming start to the Premier League under Claudio Ranieri, registering wins over Sunderland and West Ham in their opening two fixtures - and Inler’s arrival would be further boost for the Midlands club.

The Napoli man boasts a wealth of experience and was considered one of the best midfielders in Serie A a few years ago.

Inler's stock has fallen a little with age but he remains a quality, seasoned midfield operator who’s capture would be a shrewd move by the Foxes.
