Leicester City are interested in Middlesbrough defender Dael Fry while they also look set to bring Ozan Kabak back to the Premier League after Wesley Fofana’s injury blow, as reported by TEAMtalk

At this stage, we’re wondering whether the King Power Stadium is built on an ancient Indian burial ground. 

With just days to go before their Community Shield clash with Manchester City at Wembley, Fofana snapped his fibula, stretchered off the pitch with an oxygen mask strapped to his face.

As a result, arguably the best young centre-back in English football could be absent until early 2022.

That, coupled with Wes Morgan’s retirement and Jonny Evans’ own injury problems, means Brendan Rodgers has just one senior centre-back at his disposal. 

Far from ideal preparation we’re sure you’ll agree as Leicester look to force their way into the Champions League places at the third time of asking. 

Leicester eye Kabak and Fry as stand-ins for Fofana

In the aftermath of that fateful friendly clash with Villarreal in midweek, The Athletic reported Leicester expect to dip into the transfer market to compensate for Fofana’s absence.  

And, given Leicester have already held talks about a deal for Kabak, it’s no surprise to learn the former Liverpool loanee is right at the top of their wish-list.

Kabak, in theory, should slot straight into Rodgers’ starting XI without too much difficulty, especially when you consider he already has an excellent understanding with Caglar Soyuncu thanks to their time together with the Turkish national team. 

What is more, the £18 million-rated former Stuttgart man could be available for free, with cash-strapped Schalke willing to terminate his contract as they look to reduce a crippling wage bill. 

TEAMtalk reports Fry, an England U21 international, also has admirers at the King Power.

Middlesbrough’s 6ft 4in academy graduate wouldn’t come cheap, however. Former Boro manager Jonathan Woodgate previously suggested the Championship outfit would want a staggering £30 million fee (Sun).
