Sources: Two more Leicester City big names could now go

Leicester City could lose striker duo Patson Daka and Kelechi Iheanacho in the final days of the summer window, sources have told Football Insider.

It is believed that the Foxes would go into the market for forward reinforcements if both players were to leave the King Power Stadium before the 1 September deadline.

The promotion hopefuls are additionally looking for new winger options after losing stars like Harvey Barnes and James Maddison this summer.

Football Insider revealed on Monday (28 August) that Wolves have shortlisted Iheanacho as a potential striker signing ahead of the deadline later this week.

The ex-Man City star has less than 12 months to run on his contract and can negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign sides from January.

He has managed one goal and two assists in five appearances totalling 293 minutes of action so far this season.

Meanwhile, Daka is yet to play a single minute of action for Leicester following their relegation to the Championship.

Football Insider revealed last week (23 August) that the Midlands side are open to allowing the Zambia international to leave the club.

But despite Leicester’s willingness to do a deal, it is believed they want to recoup most of the reported £23million fee they paid for the former RB Salzburg striker two years ago.

The forward managed just four goals and four assists across 36 games in all competitions last season.

Enzo Maresca’s side are the only Championship team with a 100% record this season after four games.

The Foxes are in League Cup action on Tuesday night (29 August) away at Tranmere Rovers.
