The former Napoli man arrived today to further bolster Claudio Ranieri's flying Foxes.

The 33-year old joins on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £3 million, according to the Daily Mail.
Inler becomes Ranieri’s second signing of the summer - after N’Golo Kante - and Leicester’s sixth overall, following the arrivals of Shinji Okazaki, Robert Huth, Christian Fuchs and Yohan Benalouane.
The former Napoli man is another high-profile signing indicative of the new-found ambition at the King Power Stadium, and will add valuable experience in central midfield.
His arrival neatly fills the void created by Esteban Cambiasso’s departure and the combative midfielder is all set to inherit the role of Leicester’s senior statesman.
The Foxes success off the pitch has been matched by their start on it, and with maximum points from their first two games, it’s easy to understand the feel-good factor.
Reaction to Leicester’s latest big capture was unsurprisingly strong on Twitter and we’ve provided a selection of highlights below:

Inler would have been a great signing five years ago #lcfc— Chris Manning (@19manning83) August 19, 2015
Leicester love a shrewd signing! 1st Cambiasso & now Gokhan Inler! Wouldnt be surprised if they get Pirlo on loan from the MLS next! #LCFC— Matt Tempest (@matt_tempest) August 19, 2015
How any #lcfc fan can be disappointed by the signing of Inler is so utterly beyond me! He has the potential to be as good as Stefan Oakes!— Tim Cabrelli (@timcabrelli) August 19, 2015
The signing of Inler is a good one. He'll slot nicely onto the bench in place of Hammond leaving King and Drink to keep bossing the MF #lcfc— Ashley Palmer (@Ashleeeeeeeeyy) August 19, 2015
