Leicester City have made an offer to Marseille star Florian Thauvin in an effort to secure him ahead of the competition in the summer.
That’s according to Estadio Deportivo, who say the Foxes proposal is the ‘last known offer’ to have arrived on the table for the midfielder.
Thauvin is out of contract in the summer and, after receiving an ultimatum from Marseille in January, it is looking likely he will leave rather than sign a new deal.
A whole host of clubs are thought to be keen on his signature, with the 28-year-old representing a bargain signing if he is available on a free transfer.
Leicester have been named as suitors on more than one occasion, and Estadio say their offer is the last one the player has received.
They report that Brendan Rodgers’ side have offered Thauvin a four-year deal worth €3.5m per season.
How the Frenchman views that offer isn’t mentioned, but it’s made clear that he has ‘prioritised the economic aspect’, which suggests the club that offers the most will get him.
Indeed, Estadio carry quotes from agent Bruno Satin as part of their report, with him stating: “Thauvin is asking for a net annual salary of between 4 and 4.5 million euros, and nobody wants to give it to him today.”
Leicester, then, will need to up their offer if they are to get their man, with other suitors such as Sevilla, Tottenham, Roma and Napoli all still in the running as a result.
