Leicester: Foxes make Brice Samba enquiry -Leicester City News

Leicester City have made an official enquiry to sign Lens goalkeeper Brice Samba, according to reports in the last 48 hours.

The Lowdown: Instant impact

The Frenchman left Nottingham Forest over the summer despite the Reds’ promotion and he has made an impressive start to the season, with Franck Haise’s side currently sitting second in the Ligue 1 table.

The shot-stopper has played a significant role in that success, featuring for every minute of the league campaign so far, and as a result, several English clubs are reportedly interested in bringing him to the Premier League.

The Latest: Leicester eyeing Samba

According to Graeme Bailey for 90min, Leicester are ‘one of those to enquire’ for Samba, but they are set to face competition for his signature from top-flight rivals Chelsea, Tottenham, Everton and Brighton.

The report states that ‘interest is mounting’, with the five clubs mentioned ‘already beginning to look around’ at potential new first-choice goalkeepers.

Lens are claimed to have ‘little intention’ of allowing the 28-year-old to leave in January, while it would likely take a ‘sizeable offer’ to tempt him away next summer.

The Verdict: Ward upgrade?

Ever since Kasper Schmeichel left the King Power Stadium in the summer, Danny Ward has taken his place as first-choice between the sticks, but Samba could well be considered an upgrade on the Welshman.

The 6 foot 1 stopper has been dubbed a ‘ridiculous’ talent by Josh Bunting, and it’s clear to see why having kept seven clean sheets in just 15 appearances this season and conceded only 10 goals.

The Foxes have already shipped 25 goals this term in 15 league matches, all of which Ward has played.

This shows that he isn’t having much of an impact as Schmeichel’s successor, so Samba would appear to be the perfect candidate to come in and change that.
