When Dennis Praet was with Anderlecht he was constantly linked with a move to the Premier League.

Club from various traditional positions in England’s top flight were said to be interested in the midfielder, and sending scouts to watch him in action.

In the end he moved to Sampdoria in 2016, but may now get his English chance with Leicester City.

Youri Tielemans and Leander Dendoncker have similar stories, both have been with Anderlecht and seen endless links with Premier League clubs.

Dendoncker got his chance with Wolves last summer, and Tielemans, like Praet may, ended up moving elsewhere before finding his way to the Foxes.

Sky Italia report on Tuesday evening that Leicester City are ‘close to an agreement’ with Sampdoria to sign the 25 year old. It’s stated the player is ‘near’ to the club and that a ‘deal can be closed’ before the window closes on Thursday at 5pm, Sky Italia clearly think this one is likely.
