According to the Mirror, Leicester City will launch a renewed bid for Norwich City’s Robbie Brady.

The report claims that the Foxes are keen to use the money received from the N’Golo Kante sale to strike a deal for the talented midfielder, while Burnley defender Michael Keane also remains a target.

Leicester’s Premier League title success last season has already seen a leading member prised away in a big-money deal - Kante joining Antonio Conte’s Chelsea over the weekend.

While the East Midlands side’s popularity across Europe has soared, boss Claudio Ranieri has so far refused to sign the so-called big names and instead stuck to what has previously worked at the club.

Brady has recently impressed on the international stage for the Republic of Ireland, and Ranieri seemingly deems him a good fit for his side as he looks to strengthen the club’s midfield.

The Norwich star couldn’t save the Canaries from relegation to the Championship last term, yet he was among the club’s best performing players and there is no doubt he posseses top-flight quaity.

Leicester’s initial offer for Brady was rebuffed by Alex Neil’s men, but following their recent cash windfall from the sale of Kante the Premier League champions are set to go in again with an improved bid.

Brady, 24, scored three goals and added two assists in 36 league appearances for Norwich last term.
