Here's How Claudio Ranieri Will Spend N'Golo Kante Transfer Fee
it looks like the Premier League champions will use the £30 million transfer fee from the sale Kante to try and lure both Robbie Brady and Michael Keane to the King Power ahead of their Premier League opener against Hull City.
The club have already had initial bids rejected for the pair but reports suggest Ranieri will rebuff interest in Brady, who impressed in the Euros with Ireland and Keane, who impressed in the Championship last season.

The departure of N'Golo Kante is not the end of the world for Leicester.
They have already spent wisely in this summer's window, with £12 million being spent on midfielder Nampalys Mendy from Nice and free transfer Luis Hernandez coming in from Sporting Gijon.
#LCFC fans concerned when Cambiasso left then Kante arrived. Proved better/more consistent. Mendy more than capable of filling NK's shoes- Ben Jacobs (@JacobsBen) July 15, 2016
I'm sure Leicester can cope with losing Kante though... Different players but opportunity now for Mendy & possibly Amartey to step up. #LCFC- John Bennett (@JohnBennettBBC) July 15, 2016
Is the prospect of Michael Keane and Robbie Brady at Leicester a good one for the Premier League champions?
