Leicester City have entered the race to sign Jean-Kevin Augustin from RB Leipzig this summer, according to a report from The Telegraph

The Frenchman could be allowed to leave the Bundesliga club ahead of next season, with Julian Nagelsmann arriving as the team’s new first-team manager after his exploits at Hoffenheim. 

Augustin was a regular under Ralph Hasenhuttl at Leipzig but has seen his progress limited under Ralf Rangnick, and his position at the club is now under scrutiny.

Leicester could be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements this summer as Brendan Rodgers oversees his first transfer window in charge at the King Power Stadium. 

Augustin will be allowed to leave Leipzig for a meagre sum worth just £17.5 million this summer, according to The Telegraph, and this could be a more than affordable outlay for the Foxes. 

However, if they are to sign the young striker, they will need to fend off Premier League competition. Everton are also noted as potential suitors, with both clubs having already made informal enquiries.
