West Ham, Schalke 04, Besiktas, Fiorentina, Hamburg and Werder Bremen are all in the race to sign Napoli central midfielder Gokhan Inler according to Sky Sports journalist Gianluca di Marzio.
The report goes onto state that Leicester City are currently front runners in the race with Inler’s agent currently in England holding talks with the Premier League side.
The Foxes are understood to have tabled an offer of €6 million for the 31-year-old. Leicester’s newly appointed manager Claudio Ranieri revealed earlier this week that he was close to securing a replacement for Esteban Cambiasso.
Cambiasso opted against extending his contract with the Foxes and departed the club at the end of last season.
Inler scored one goal in 33 appearances for Napoli in all competitions last season. The Switzerland international has also previously played for Udinese, Zurich and FC Basel.
Leicester pulled off the ‘great-escape’ last season to beat the drop. The foxes ended the season in 14th place with 41 points.
