Brendan Rodgers has made a bid worth over £30 million for James Tarkowski, the Burnley centre-half.


Leicester have already had one offer turned down for the England international this month and are returning with a second proposal which they hope will persuade Burnley into agreeing a deal.


Rodgers, the Leicester manager, has identified a new centre-back as a priority in this transfer window and Tarkowski, 28, has been a long-term target for the club.


Leicester are operating under a restricted budget but have made a significant offer for Tarkowski, due to the pressing need for defensive reinforcements.


Burnley are demanding the £50m fee written into Tarkowski’s contract yet Leicester are hopeful of striking a compromise due to the severe impact of Covid-19 on football's finances.


It is understood that Tarkowski is interested in pursuing a move to the King Power Stadium.

If the Fofana price is pushing up to £40m makes sense Tarkowski looks more palatable at maybe £35m? 

Plus with injuries to key players catching us out recently feels quite good to have a safe bet rather than what is a risk on a young player in Fofana.

28 years old that will have no sell on value doesn’t seem like the kind of move you’d see us make nowadays.... hopefully it is a smokescreen for big Wes 🙏🏻

he 28 not 32.  If he plays for a 5 year contract that is not a lot of money these days.
