According to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli, the Blues have reportedly opened talks with the Foxes and are set to table an offer of £46.5million for the winger.
The Algerian international handed in a transfer request back in May to force a move away from the King Power Stadium, yet the player still remains at the club with two days to go until the transfer window closes.
Arsenal and Barcelona have been linked with the player over the summer, while Serie A side Roma have been unable to agree on a fee with the former Premier League champions.
The news that Antonio Conte wants to strengthen his side with the talented winger has gone down extremely well with the club’s supporters.
