Leicester preparing second Jonny Evans bid

  Leicester preparing second Jonny Evans bid Leicester are ready to lodge a second bid for West Brom defender Jonny Evans, according to the Telegraph. The Foxes have already seen a £10 million bid for the former Manchester United man rejected, but see him as a key part of the rebuild happening at the King Power. Leicester have already completed a deal to sign Harry Maguire from Hull for £17 million, who Evans could form a new-look central defensive partnership with. Baggies boss Tony Pulis has admitted in the past it would be tough to keep hold of Evans, who performed admirably at the heart of the West Brom defence last season. Leicester’s first choice target was Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson, but the recently relegated side were demanding too much for the England international. Evans has not been short of suitors since joining the club. Following a string of impressive performances, Arsenal and Everton have both been linked to the player in the past.

Leicester are close to agreeing a compensation package with Oxford United to make Michael Appleton their new assistant manager, according to Sky sources.

Craig Shakespeare worked alongside Appleton as a coach at West Bromwich Albion, and targeted him after being given a new three-year contract as Leicester manager.

Appleton was appointed Oxford manager in July 2014 and achieved promotion to Sky Bet League One in his second season with the club.

The 41-year-old, who has also managed Portsmouth, Blackpool and Blackburn, has twice led Oxford to the Football League Trophy final, losing on both occasions.

Sky Sports News HQ also understands Leicester are still looking to sign another centre-back, despite the £17m acquisition of Harry Maguire from Hull last week.

Leicester had a £10m bid for West Brom's Jonny Evans turned down, according to Sky sources, and have since been linked in the national press with a move for Manchester United's Chris Smalling.

Liverpool have no deal in place to sign Salah .
Liverpool have no deal in place to sign ex-Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah from AS Roma. Football-Italia understands that despite recent rumours of a deal being close to completion, the two sides are still thought to be some way off an agreement. Roma are demanding £35 million for the player and Liverpool have also begun to work on alternative transfer plans. The AS Roma winger is being linked with a summer move to Anfield as Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his squad ahead of the club’s return to the Champions League next season. Salah appears to be one of the club’s main targets after reportedly ending their interest in Virgil van Dijk. Whilst this is by no means Liverpool ending their interest in the player, a deal is perhaps not as close as some were suggesting. The Reds have been linked with Southampton’s Dusan Tadic, who is available for £13 million, as a potential alternative.
