He made just 12 league starts and has played just 78 minutes of Premier League football since February.

That has prompted Monaco to pursue a loan move for the Frenchman, report The Athletic.

The Ligue Un outfit are looking to upgrade their midfield following the sale of Aurelien Tchouameni to Real Madrid.

And the Foxes appear willing to loan out Soumare despite Youri Tielemans potentially heading for pastures new.

Arsenal and Manchester United have been credited with an interest in the Belgian who has just one year remaining on his contract.

If Soumare leaves Leicester could reportedly replace him with Feyenoord star Orkun Kokcu, who scored nine goals and produced nine assists last season.

The Turk also played an influential role in Feyenoord’s run to the Europa Conference League final – a competition Leicester know well after reaching the semi-final.

Leicester are also rumoured to be in the market for a centre-back this summer and have their eye on Chelsea’s Levi Colwill.

The youngster is also attracting attention from Crystal Palace, Brighton and Nottingham Forest however.

Burnley’s Nathan Collins is another option for Brendan Rodgers’ side but he is also in high demand this summer.
