Leicester agree initial £12.5 million fee for Rachid Ghezzal

Leicester City have certainly made a lot of positive moves so far this summer as they go on in search of another shock season in the Premier League. 

The Foxes haven’t lived up to expectations since securing the Premier League title a while back, but they have certainly made a number of positive changes this summer on the transfer front. And, it doesn’t look as if Claude Puel’s hard work is about to stop now, as according to the Mail Online, Leicester City have agreed an initial £12.5 million fee for Monaco’s Rachid Ghezzal.

Leicester have agreed an initial £12.5 million deal for Monaco winger Rachid Ghezzal.

The Algerian international arrived for a medical on Friday and has agreed a four year contract.

Interestingly, the 26-year-old managed to accumulate four assists and notched two goals in 35 appearances.

Indeed, the winger could be seen as a direct replacement for Riyad Mahrez, who left for Manchester City earlier on in the transfer window.

THE VERDICT: 

So, Claude Puel is still looking to make moves on the transfer front this summer as he has now agreed an initial fee for Rachid Ghezzal, who could fill the void left by Riyad Mahrez.

Leicester City stand a great chance of doing the unthinkable once again this season if they can manage to keep hold of their star players this transfer window. And, with a number of new players looking to make their mark on the Premier League, things are looking up for the Foxes.
