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.
