Leicester are interested in signing Sampdoria midfielder Dennis Praet, according to Sky in Italy.

The 25-year-old is likely to cost the Foxes more than £15m, and AC Milan and Valencia are also understood to be keen.

Praet played with Youri Tielemans, who joined Leicester for £35m from Monaco earlier this week, at Anderlecht before moving to Sampdoria.

Praet, who had a trial with Arsenal as a teenager, scored twice and recorded three assists in 37 games for the Serie A side last season.

His agent has confirmed Milan's interest, and added: "There are other clubs that want to sign him, especially abroad. They've already shown their interest."
