Timothy Castagne completes Leicester medical

Leicester are close to tying up a deal for Atalanta full-back Timothy Castagne for £21.5m. 

The defender is a direct replacement for Ben Chilwell, who joined Chelsea in a £50m deal. 

Castagne, who is currently with the Belgium national team, has reportedly completed his medicals, which were done in Italy due to the travel restrictions.

The 24-year-old has won seven caps for the Red Devils, but the deal might take longer due to his commitments with the national team. 

Leicester had earmarked Castagne and Ajax full-back Ajax's Nicolas Tagliafico to replace Chilwell, but seem now to have settled on the Belgian.
