Gokhan Inler looks set to leave the King Power Stadium.
Leicester have had approaches from both Lyon and Besiktas for the Swiss midfielder, who hasn’t played in the Premier League since last December.
Manager Claudio Ranieri has told Inler he can leave the club if the right offer comes in.
Inler joined City a year ago from Napoli and it was hoped the experienced central midfielder would prove to be the replacement for Esteban Cambiasso, but Inler has failed to establish himself in Ranieri’s starting line-up.
As a result, Inler not only lost the captaincy of Switzerland, he was left out of the squad for Euro 2016 completely and is keen on a move away to secure regular first team football and to force his way back into the Swiss squad.
Turkish side Besiktas have retained an interest in Inler, while Ligue 1 side Lyon have joined the race to sign Inler and it is hoped a deal will be done before the transfer deadline on Wednesday.
