Leicester City are reportedly in the race to sign Celtic target Omar Elabdellaoui from Olympiakos.
According to claims from Greek news outlet SDNA, the Foxes are in the race to land the Norway international, who could be available for as little as €5 million this summer.
Elabdellaoui was a target for Brendan Rodgers at Celtic during the January transfer window, but the Hoops did not manage to complete a deal for the defender.
The Scottish Premiership league leaders are understood to still be in the hunt for the 27-year-old’s signature, but their former boss appears to have established his interest in signing the player at the King Power Stadium.
Elabdellaoui has performed well for Olympiakos and the Norwegian national team in recent seasons, and a return to the Premier League could be on the cards following his previous exploits on loan at Hull City.
Leicester currently have Ricardo Pereira and Danny Simpson as options at right-back, but Rodgers could yet add to his defensive ranks this summer, it seems.
Other right-backs who Leicester could target
Cedric won’t be signed by Inter Milan this summer and will return from his loan to Southampton. He’d be a good rotational option for Leicester.
Maehle is among the most promising right-backs in world football. The Genk star would be a smart addition.
Toure has enjoyed a strong season at Eintracht Frankfurt and would be a shrewd signing from Rodgers.
Rodgers will know all about Tavernier following his exploits in Scotland. The Rangers captain has consistently impressed in recent seasons.
Malcuit is a sporadic first-team player at Napoli and a move to the Premier League could be beneficial for the Frenchman.
