English Premier League side Leicester City have turned their attention to Swansea and Ghana forward Jordan Ayew.

The Foxes are looking at finding a suitable replacement for forward Riyad Mahrez who left the club to join Manchester City in a £60 million deal.

Jordan is destined to leave Swansea after the club were relegated into the English Championship.

Leicester City will have to pay at least £12 million to acquire the services of the forward.

Jordan Ayew enjoyed a slow start to his 2017/18 season but picked up at the right time to emerge as the Swans best player of the season and their top scorer as well.
