Leicester City have expressed an interest in permanently signing Chelsea defender Levi Colwill this summer.
Colwill had a productive loan spell at Huddersfield Town last season and was expected to break into the Chelsea first team.
That is unlikely to happen, as the Blues intend to sign three central defenders during the current transfer window.
As a result, they are willing to sanction his departure, and The Express claims that the Foxes are considering an approach for his services.
The Midlands club is hoping to sign him for between £15 and £20 million, allowing the Blues to include a higher buy-back clause.
Chelsea may be tempted to accept the proposal after agreeing to a similar clause with Southampton for Tino Livramento.
Livramento had a strong start to last season, but he may be out for a while after suffering a serious knee injury in April.
Colwill has also been linked with Arsenal, but the Blues are unlikely to offer their highly-rated graduate to the Gunners.
