Leicester City are in advanced talks with Genk over a £14 million deal for Wilfred Ndidi, as Claudio Ranieri prepares to strengthen the struggling Premier League champions.
Ranieri is close to completing a deal for the highly-rated teenager and expects to make Ndidi Leicester’s first capture of the January transfer window.
Negotiations are ongoing but Leicester are confident of signing the 19-year-old in the New Year in a deal which could rise to £16 million after instalments.
Ndidi can play in the centre of defence or as a midfielder in front of the back four and Ranieri believes his versatility could be crucial over the second half of the season.
Leicester captain Wes Morgan and Robert Huth have struggled at times during the club’s title defence but there has been a distinct lack of alternative options for the title holders.
Ndidi’s reputation is already impressive since he made his debut for Nigeria in October last year and Leicester are putting the finishing touches to a deal. It could even be announced within the first week of the January window.
Leicester’s recruitment has been under scrutiny this season after a number of signings failed to hit the ground running, yet Ndidi would represent a serious coup.
Ranieri is also likely to target a creative midfielder and a winger to strengthen his squad, who are currently two points above the bottom three.
Leonardo Ulloa is also likely to leave if an acceptable offer is received, with Sunderland, Swansea and Hull City set to renew their interest when the transfer window opens.
“Every day is a big, big match for us,” he said. “I am confident that we will work so hard with a strong mentality, because now we have to live in two ways. One Champions League, one Premier League. 
“In the Champions League we are so happy, in Premier League we aren't happy. It is  important to be focused on the Premier League. We have to focus on what happens in the league.”
