Multiple reports emerged on Saturday morning adding one more team to the race for landing Keylor Navas: Leicester City from the English Premier League.

The British club is exploring the possibility of submitting an offer to PSG in order for Brendan Rodgers' side to land the goalkeeper through the remainder of the January transfer window.

This is surprising, considering Navas was reportedly really close to signing with the Saudi Arabia team and Cristiano Ronaldo led Al-Nassr.

On Saturday, though, Andy Turnswood of BBC Radio reported interest from Leicester on the Costa Rica international and second-string PSG goalkeeper. According to Turnswood, LCFC will need to fend off the efforts made by Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth as the main pursuers of the veteran shot-stopper.

Already 36 years old, Navas has only played one competitive game at PSG this season while not featuring nearly at all in coach Christophe Galtier's plans for the 2022-23 campaign.

Keylor Navas might be on the move, is expected to leave Paris through January

His deal won't run out until the summer of 2024, which paired with his precarious situation has made him consider a move away from Paris as soon as this January. PSG would be happy with that, says Turnswood in his little news drop.

Leicester allowed former Foxes' goalie Kasper Schmeichel to leave the team last summer as he joined Nice for free with his deal at Leicester running out in June. They haven't found a proper replacement and they are looking for solutions, with Navas being their no. 1 target as things stand.

Danny Ward is Leicester's current GK1, though he's allowed 33 goals in 19 Premier League games played this season, not quite a bright stat line. Leicester sits in 14th place in the EPL entering the weekend.

With Sergio Rico blocked from getting loaned out (PSG can't loan any more players this season), Paris Saint-Germain is looking to sell at least one of their two reserve goalkeepers this January.
