Leicester City are hoping to complete the transfer of Gokhan Inler form Napoli this week according to the Leicester Mercury.
The Leicester based newspaper goes onto state that Inler is set to become Leicester’s sixth signing of the summer.
The Premier League side have agreed a £5 million deal with Napoli and have agreed personal terms with the Switzerland international.
Claudio Ranieri has been looking to replace former Real Madrid and Inter star Esteban Cambiasso at the heart of his midfield.
“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).
Inler has become the second player of Turkish origin to join the Premier League over the summer. Bursaspor youngster Enes Ünal was signed by Manchester City on a £2 million deal last month.
The Swiss international has also previously played for Udinese, Zurich and FC Basel. The experienced midfielder captained Switzerland at last year’s World Cup.
