Leicester have opened initial talks over a potential deal for Feyenoord midfielder Orkun Kokcu.

The Dutch-born Turkey international has been watched by a number of Premier League clubs including Arsenal in recent seasons and is open to a move this summer.

Leicester, though, want to offload players first with a number of possible exits being discussed.

Belgian midfielder Dennis Praet is discussing a move to Fiorentina, which would free up space in the Foxes’ midfield for Kokcu to arrive.

Praet has been a Leicester player since 2018, but spent last season on loan at Torino, and could be set for a move back to Italy.

Torino are interested in re-signing the Belgian on a permanent deal, but may struggle to meet Leicester’s asking price – a feat Fiorentina won’t struggle with.

Real Betis also want Ayoze Perez, while defender Jannik Vestergaard has interest from a number of Premier League sides.

Leicester have been following Kokcu’s progress for some time and the midfielder almost moved to the King Power Stadium in January.

At the time, the 21-year-old admitted he would be willing to move to the Premier League if it helped Feyenoord’s financial situation.

His contract runs until 2025, and he has scored 19 goals in 122 games for the Dutch side.
