TEAMtalk claim that should any club meet Leicester’s £85m valuation of Harry Maguire this summer they won’t stand in the way of him leaving the King Power.
It’s a bold transfer claim from the publication who suggest that the Foxes are eyeing up Lewis Dunk as a replacement. The report claims that the Brighton man could move to the Midlands for a huge fee of £40m.
Reacting to the news on Twitter, Leicester supporters were baffled by the update, laying down their concerns in abundance.
One fan claimed the world had gone mad after seeing the report whilst a further supporter suggested that if they could find the money for Dunk, they could quite easily cough up the funds required to sign Youri Tielemans.
The Telegraph claimed last month that the Foxes had been put off by Monaco’s £40m price tag for the Belgian. To think they’d be willing to spend that much on Dunk is therefore incredibly questionable.
The 27-year-old was vital for the Seagulls in 2018/19, featuring 36 times as he missed just two Premier League games.
Here’s the best of the reaction.

If we can afford 40m for Dunk, then surely we have enough funds for Tielemans, just get it done
