Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti wants Leicester City centre-back, Wesley Fofana, as the replacement for the outgoing Sergio Ramos.
Ramos will be leaving Madrid at the end of the month after 16 years with them despite new boss Ancelotti trying to convince the player to ink a new deal.
With the departure confirmed by the club, the Daily Star now reports that the Spanish giants want Fofana to fill the void left by the Spaniard.
Fofana has impressed in his debut season in English football with 28 top-flight league appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side in the last 12 months with the club set to demand a fee in the region of €40m for French U21 international this summer.
Apart from Ramos, the future of Rafael Varane is uncertain with reports rife that he might join Man United or PSG something that the player said he will only talk about after Euros with France.
While Los Blancos have brought in David Alaba as a free agent from Bayern Munich, there is a need for some reinforcements in defence should Varane decide not to return to the club too; the Frenchman has only one year remaining on his current deal.
