Amid the ongoing saga that is Harry Maguire this summer, Leicester City are actually busy doing their other business.
Most of that has been focused on incomings but departures are also likely as Brendan Rodgers moulds the squad he inherited.
One of those that could be on the move is Nampalys Mendy, that’s as far as L’Equipe are concerned.
The French newspaper report that the Foxes are ‘currently negotiating’ with Saint Etienne over the midfielder with the Frenchman considered a ‘priority’ for the Ligue 1 side.
Mendy joined the Foxes back in 2016 and made 31 appearances for them last season, featuring in seven of Rodgers’ ten games in charge.
He’s got a year left on his current deal, though, and that has seemingly put him on the list of potential sales. St Etienne are keen but because of his contract situation are trying to negotiate the Foxes’ asking price down.
L’Equipe don’t mention what sort of price Leicester want, although it’s likely they’ll at least try to recoup most of the €16m they originally paid for him.
They can take advantage of the fact they know St Etienne will have money following the sale of William Saliba to Arsenal and will surely use that to drive a hard bargain on Mendy should they look to sell.
