Leicester Planning Triple European Swoop

Premier League table toppers Leicester City are making some transfer plans for life in the Champions League next season, by preparing a triple European swoop.

Ousmane Dembele, Bartlomiej Dragowski and Tonny Vilhena are all being targeted by the Foxes, who moved to within two points of the most unlikely of title triumphs today with a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United.

Dembele, 18, is a striker at French club Rennes, and is being watched by clubs all over Europe. He has just broken into the French Under-21 setup.

Dragowski, also 18, is a keeper at Jagiellonia, in the Polish Ekstraklasa, and is seen as a back-up for Kasper Schmeichel. Like Dembele, he has also appeared at international under-21 level.

Vilhena, 21, plays in midfield for Dutch side Feyenoord and will be a free agent this summer. He, like the others, is also involved at under-21 level, and was a part of the 2012 UEFA European Under-17 Championship, where he scored in a penalty shoot-out in the Final against Germany.

Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri is also looking at strengthening the defence, as Ben Chilwell is leaving the club.
