The Foxes are not enthusiastic about selling the England worldwide, in any case, with Harry Maguire’s reality record £80m move to Manchester United starting a trend for how the club will manage selling their best resources.
Somewhere else, West Ham’s Declan Rice is a drawn out objective of Chelsea’s, however the possibility of an up and coming move isn’t looking likely after David Moyes’ side’s expectations of remaining in the Premier League were helped by a 3-2 win over Chelsea a week ago.
