Leicester City remain ‘interested’ in a move for Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah and could get him for cheaper than his €35m release clause.
That’s according to SportBILD, who say Leverkusen will be looking to sell the defender this summer if they can get their target Jeremiah St. Juste.
The newspaper explains that Leverkusen are competing with Borussia Dortmund for Mainz centre-back St. Juste and despite him costing €15m, they have the money after not spending all of the funds from Kai Havertz’s move to Chelsea last summer.
Should they get the 24-year-old, they would then, in turn, sell Jonathan Tah, and Leicester are keen on his signature.
They were interested in a move last summer but didn’t go through with it, instead bringing Wesley Fofana to the club in a move that has proven very successful for both parties.
Tah did have a €35m release clause in his contract, but that has now expired, and so the 25-year-old will ‘probably be allowed’ to leave for a smaller amount.
Leicester, among others, are ‘interested’ in a deal, although it’s not made clear at what price they would like to get the defender.
It is stated that any deal ‘will be late’, though, so it seems like this rumour will run for a while yet.
