Leicester City coach expects Gokhan Inler to sign this week

Leicester City coach Kevin Phillips has told TalkSport that Gokhan Inler could complete his £5 million move to the Premier League side this week.

“I believe there is something happening this week, but that department is not really down to me,” said Phillips stated on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

The Switzerland international is expected to arrive in Leicester to under go his medical in the coming days.


Leicester’s manager Claudio Ranieri has been on the lookout for an experienced midfielder to replace former Real Madrid and Inter star Esteban Cambiasso. The Argentine left Leicester after turning down a new contract at the end of last season.

“I want to speak when there is something concrete. I think the club are speaking to a lot of players and I hope, as soon as it is possible, one player will arrive,” Ranieri said in a conference when asked about Inler (Independent).

Fiorentina, West Ham, Hamburg and Werder Bremen are all also in the race to sign Inler according to Di Marzio.

Inler scored one goal in 33 appearances for Napoli in all competitions last season.
