The Foxes boast some exiting wingers in the shape of Demarai Gray and Harvey Barnes, among others.

And the addition of Robben would add a vast amount of experience to Brendan Rodgers' youthful team.

Of course, the left-footed maestro enjoyed three years in England with Chelsea. He transferred to the West London outfit in 2004 and won the league title twice as well as the FA Cup during his spell.

Robben then swapped Chelsea for Real Madrid before spending a huge portion of his professional career at Bayern Munich.

Though he's set to leave Germany after 10 trophy-laden seasons. He won the lot including the coveted Champions League in 2013.

He scored a late winner at Wembley Stadium to seal European silverware.

"Of course, one thinks a lot about the future. That was already the case last year when I extended for another year. Ten years has been an incredibly nice and long period," Robben said about his decision to leave Bayern Munich.

"I'm 35 in the summer and I think it's good for everyone, including myself and the club. I'm still very happy at the club, but the point is also coming where you say, now it's okay."
