The Foxes recently got some business over the line as they signed defender Timothy Castagne from Atalanta in a deal worth £22million.
Rodgers sealed the Belgian’s signature following Ben Chilwell’s £50million exit to Chelsea, as the 24-year-old international penned a five-year deal with Leicester.
They are also remaining interested in Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, however they are unlikely to make a move whilst the Scottish champions remain firm on their £40m asking price.
