There’s already been activity at the King Power Stadium, with Jonny Evans arriving from West Brom for £3.5million.

The likes of Jack Grealish, Patrick Roberts and James Maddison have also been linked with moves to Leicester.

But one man set for an imminent exit is Riyad Mahrez, who is finally set to get his dream switch to Manchester City.

Mahrez, who handed in a transfer request to force through the move in January, will bank Leicester a stunning £75m, opening the door for even more arrivals.
