According to Sky Sports, Leicester City wanted to sign Bournemouth centre-back Nathan Ake but have been scared off by his asking price.

Leicester City are set to sell Harry Maguire to Manchester United for a huge £80 million fee.

They had set their sights on Dutch international Nathan Ake as Maguire’s replacement. However, according to Sky Sports, Bournemouth are asking for £75 million to depart with their centre-back.

That fee is too high for Leicester City, who only have until Thursday to sign players before the transfer window in England slams shut.

Ake joined Bournemouth on a permanent deal in 2017 for a £20 million fee from Chelsea.
