Midfielder Stefano Sensi is set to join Leicester City from Inter Milan, and will do so after the Supercoppa Italiana.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews.
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.
Stefano Sensi To Join Leicester City From Inter After Supercoppa Italiana
At the moment, Sensi is with the rest of the Inter squad in Riyadh for the Supercoppa Italiana.
The likelihood of the 28-year-old playing a part in this evening’s final against Napoli is, of course, very low.
Sensi did not feature against Lazio in the semifinal.
This is no surprise, both given the fact that the former Sassuolo midfielder has played a peripheral role this season, and given the fact that he is likely to leave very soon.
But Sensi has nevertheless been with the squad.
And the club are all focused on the Supercoppa, and so there have been no developments in negotiations with Leicester.
But once Inter return to Italy there will be a new meeting.
FCIN anticipate that the clubs could complete the negotiations for Sensi either tomorrow or on Wednesday.
Leicester will pay Inter a fee of around €2 million.
And then, Sensi will sign either a one-and-a-half-year or two-and-a-half-year deal with the Foxes.
