One of the key factors for Lille to achieve Ligue 1 current leadership, French U21 international defensive midfielder Boubakary Soumaré (22), playing for Les Dogues since 2017/18, is getting closer and closer to join Leicester City for good. PSG alumni, grown and enhancing himself as a powerhouse for French club throughout the latest four seasons, was previously pursued by a bunch of clubs around (including Arsenal, Liverpool, and AC Milan), and might be now moving out on an about 25 million euros transfer fee. PSG alumni would therefore experience Premier League football for the first time around.

By signing Soumaré, Foxes would side him to James Maddison, Marc Albrighton, Nampalys Mendy, Wilfried Ndidi, and Youri Tielemans, while the latter might be leaving PL prominent side indeed. Meanwhile, the 1999-born might be joining in as a French national title winner.
