Wesley Fofana who is currently on the books of Premier League giants Leicester City has reportedly emerged as summer transfer target for Spanish side Real Madrid.

This is because their star defender Raphael Varane is edging close for a move to Manchester United and Los Blancos' chiefs are looking for a replacement.

The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils, who are stepping up their pursuit of a long-term partner for Harry Maguire.

If Varane does leave the Bernabeu, Carlo Ancelotti is said to be eyeing up a replacement from one of United’s Premier League rivals.

According to the report on Daily Star and Hard Tackle, Real Madrid chiefs see Wesley Fofona as a man who will be good for their squad next season.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Julen Lopetegui may have turned down a chance to become Tottenham Hotspur's next manager over the 'dizzying' deal they offered the Spaniard.

The North London club remains coach-less since the exit of Jose Mourinho about three months ago due to a poor run of results.

Spurs have made a number of attempts at hiring top managers including former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte but they couldn't agree on a deal.

They have also negotiated with Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso while they hoped for the return of Mauricio Pochettino but none yielded positive result.

Tottenham's new football managing director Fabio Paratici is said to have reached out to Lopetegui following his success at Sevilla - winning the Europa League in 2020 and also guiding them to Champions League qualification next season.

Also, Legit.ng reported how Dominic Calvert-Lewin emerged as a top transfer target for new Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti this summer.

The Italian-born tactician was named Los Blancos' next handler after the exit of Zinedine Zidane at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

Ancelotti didn't think twice to quit his role as the Toffees head coach for a return to the Santiago Bernabeu despite his £1million-a-month deal at the Premier League club.
