Fulham have made an offer for Leicester City midfielder Daniel Amartey, according to reports this afternoon.

The Foxes are willing to sell the 25 year-old, who has struggled for both fitness and form of late at the King Power Stadium, and is now not considered an integral part of Brendon Rodgers’ squad. Leicester value the Ghanaian international at around £5m and Fulham have held a long-standing interest in the former Djurgardens and Copenhagen man, having had approaches rebuffed last January.

Amartey signed for Leicester for around £6m in January 2016 and made five first-team appearances as the Foxes surprised everyone by winning the Premier League title under Claudio Ranieri. He succeeded Ngolo Kante in the holding midfield role the following season, making 35 appearances and scoring a single goal, a late leveller at Stoke City. He has suffered several injury setbacks at Leicester, breaking his ankle and being sidelined for nearly two years before making a goalscoring return in a pre-season friendly against Blackburn Rovers earlier this summer.

Amartey, who has won 26 caps for Ghana, helped the Black Stars finish fourth in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, where he was named in the team of the tournament. The powerful midfielder, who won the Danish title and two domestic cups during his team with Copenhagen, can also play in central defence, which remains a problem position for Scott Parker.
