According to the Mirror, Leicester City will launch a new bid for Norwich City midfielder Robbie Brady as the East Midlands club look to strengthen following the departure of N’Golo Kante.

The Canaries ace impressed with the Republic of Ireland during the European Championships in France, scoring the winner against Italy which saw the Irish reach the knockout stages.

The Foxes’ initial offer for the 24-year-old was turned down, but that hasn’t dented their confidence in their bid to sign Brady before the start of the upcoming season.

In other news, West Bromwich Albion have seen a £9 million offer for Leicester ace Jeffrey Schlupp turned down by Claudio Ranieri’s men, as per a report in the Telegraph.

The 23-year-old Ghanaian filled in at left-back and sometimes in midfield last season, making a total of 24 Premier League appearances as Leicester astonishingly won the title.

The Baggies seemingly remain keen, though they may have to offer an eight-figure fee to land the verstile star.

One person Leicester have lost though is the popular Steve Walsh, with the club's former head of recruitment heading to Everton to be part of Ronald Koeman’s backroom staff at Goodison Park.

The Mirror claim he personally asked the club’s owners to sanction his move to the Toffees, where he will take up duties as director of football in what can be described as a promotion.

Finally, new signing Ahmed Musa is confident of becoming a hit at the King Power Stadium as he told reporters for the Nation how he doesn’t feel any pressure to succeed.

He said: “I believe in God’s time which is the best and that was why I was patient till the time came to move (to England). I have never been under pressure at any club I have played and it won’t be different here too”

Musa joined Leicester from CSKA Moscow and will provide the club with further ammunition in attack.
