Foxes Double Deal?

Leicester City are trying to sign Jonny Evans and Aleksandar Dragovic, according to the Leicester Mercury.

The Foxes have made a move to sign West Bromwich Albion’s captain, who has a release clause in his contract of just £3m, following the Baggies relegation to the Championship.

They also want to sign Dragovic on a permanent deal from Bayer Leverkusen after impressing on loan last season - keen to bolster their defensive options after the departure of Robert Huth and concerns whether Wes Morgan can continue to play as many games next season.

West London Switch?

The Express are reporting Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has emerged as shock candidate to take over from Antonio Conte at Chelsea this summer.

Close Call...

VFL Wolfsburg have kept their place in next season’s Bundesliga after beating Holstein Kiel 4-1 on aggregate in their two-legged relegation play-off.

It comes after a torrid season for the club, spectacularly falling from runners-up and Champions League football last term to flirting with relegation this campaign.

Off-field turmoil has also seen a number of departures, including Olaf Rebbe who joined Huddersfield Town as Sporting Director at the weekend.
