Leicester City reportedly face a fight to keep hold of central defender Jonny Evans.

According to a report from The Daily Mail, the Foxes are looking at bringing in Ben Davies from Preston North End, but could lose Northern Ireland international Evans.

The 32-year-old only has one year remaining on his contract at the King Power Stadium, meaning the club are vulnerable to losing him on the cheap.

Evans has been with Leicester since 2018 after joining from West Bromwich Albion in a reported £3.5 million move (BBC Sport).

The star has been nothing short of outstanding for the Midlands club since his transfer, and his partnership with Caglar Soyuncu in 2019/20 came in for regular plaudits, especially in the first half of the season.

With Leicester potentially set to lose £80,000-a-week star Evans (Spotrac), one club that should undoubtedly be monitoring the situation is Everton, who need reinforcements in central defence.
