Leicester City have yet to make Inter Milan an offer for midfielder Stefano Sensi.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the Foxes could wait until the end of the season to sign the 28-year-old on a free transfer.
Leicester have set their sights on former Sassuolo midfielder Sensi.
The driving force behind the Championship club’s interest is their coach Enzo Maresca.
The Italian coach took charge of the Foxes last summer, after they had been relegated from the Premier League.
And so far they are thriving under Maresca’s stewardship, top of the Englash second division league table.
Maresca, who was formerly assistant coach to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, is shaping Leicester into his preferred style of play.
And Sensi is a player who the coach believes would fit in well.
The Italian international joined Inter from Sassuolo in the summer of 2019. However, injuries have been a big reason why he has not played regularly.
Sensi has played for the likes of Sampdoria and Monza on loan.
The 28-year-old has been back at Inter since last summer. However, he has barely featured, not starting once this season despite largely being fit.
Leicester Yet To Make Inter An Offer For Stefano Sensi – Could Wait Until Next Summer
Considering Sensi’s peripheral role in the team this season, Inter would certainly be ready to sell him this month.
The Nerazzurri have slapped a price tag of around €2-3 million on the Italian international.
Leicester are considering paying that fee.
But on the other hand, Maresca and his club are also considering waiting.
Considering that Sensi will be available on a free transfer when his contract with Inter expires at the end of June, that could certainly be a more cost-effective approach.
Therefore, the Foxes have yet to make Inter an offer for Sensi.
For his part, the player himself would welcome a January transfer to Leicester.
But the Nerazzurri will have to wait and see whether an offer arrives and they can cash in on Sensi at what amounts to the last opportunity.
