It appears that Leicester City have just received a nice, big boost in their attempts to sign Mahmoud Dahoud from Borussia Dortmund.

That’s because the player will not be receiving a new contract from the German side and will therefore walk free in the summer.

Ruhr Nachrichten bring the latest on the situation on Monday after Sebastian Kehl announced that the two sides would be parting ways, and reveal that Leicester are trying to sign him.

They aren’t the only ones, however, as Milan and Napoli are also on the hunt, placed in a list with the Foxes, as the trio are ‘said to be interested in the 27-year-old’, although to what extent isn’t stated.

That being said, following Monday’s news, they add that ‘interested parties are likely to increase again’, as everyone now knows he will be a free agent in the summer.

For Leicester, that sadly means more competition, but with the project seemingly back on track at the King Power Stadium under Brendan Rodgers, perhaps the temptation of playing Premier League football could play in their favour.
