According to today's print edition of The Sun, Leicester City have made an approach to Sevilla in a bid to sign centre back Adil Rami this summer.

The Foxes are looking to improve their squad this summer as they prepare for their historic Champions League campaign - and having won the Premier League title this past season, they should be an appealing proposition to many players.

Now, The Sun claim that manager Claudio Ranieri is keen to strengthen his defence, despite already having Wes Morgan and Robert Huth in his back line - and it's believed that Adil Rami is his top target.

The 30-year-old centre back started for France in their 2-1 win over Romania at Euro 2016 on Friday evening, where he played alongside Leicester star N'Golo Kante.

Rami stands at a giant 6ft 3in and is known for his power and aerial ability; qualities which have helped him play for big clubs like Valencia, AC Milan and now Sevilla.

Since joining Sevilla last summer, Rami has won the Europa League title and earned a spot in France's starting line-up, summing up just how impressive his last year has been for the Andalusian side.

Now though, it's claimed that Leicester boss Ranieri is set to make a £5m bid to sign Rami, and an approach has already been made to Sevilla whilst Rami is in France playing at Euro 2016.
