Premier League champions, Leicester City, are in advanced talks with Genk over a £14million deal for versatile Nigerian player, Wilfred Ndidi.
Claudio Ranieri is looking to strengthen his squad, following a poor start to the defence of their title and is ready to make Ndidi his first recruit in the January transfer window.
According to The Telegraph, negotiations are going on between the two clubs, but Leicester are confident of getting their man in the new year.
The deal could eventually rise to £16million after instalments.
Ndidi can play in the centre of defence or as a midfielder in front of the back four.
His arrival will increase the number of Nigerians at the club to two with winger Ahmed Musa already part of the squad.
