Leicester City and Bayer Leverkusen are interested in signing Nadiem Amiri from Hoffenheim this summer. 

According to claims from Sport Bild, as cited in a report from Leicestershire Live, the pair have established an interest in recruiting the playmaker, who could be set for a move ahead of next season. 

Amiri enjoyed a fantastic tournament with the Germany Under-21 side at the European Championships this summer, and as such, he is subject to plenty of interest in the transfer window.

The promising creative midfielder is believed to have a release clause worth €14 million until the end of July, and with one year remaining on his current contract at Hoffenheim, clubs are circling as they pursue a bargain deal. 

Leicester have already added Ayoze Perez to their attacking options, but with the chance to sign Amiri on the cheap emerging, it seems they are keen. 

Bayer Leverkusen, meanwhile, could be keen to add another midfielder to their ranks following Julian Brandt’s switch to Borussia Dortmund earlier on in the summer.
