Leicester have approached Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana about the possibility of a free transfer this summer.
Lallana is out of contract at the end of the season and there is currently no sign of a new deal for the 31-year-old.
A number of Premier League clubs have already registered their interest and talkSPORT understands the Foxes have made their interest in Lallana known.
The England international is free to negotiate and sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs, which has prompted Leicester to make clear their intentions.
Players must have the permission of their current club to negotiate with other English sides before their contract runs out.
It is thought Liverpool have made it clear to Lallana that he won’t be offered a new deal and allowed him to start planning his future.
The midfielder was brought to Anfield by current Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers in 2014.
They worked together for a year before Rodgers was replaced by Jurgen Klopp, and since then Lallana has struggled for regular starts.
However, Rodgers clearly remains an admirer of the playmaker, and is willing to give him another opportunity to play top-flight football.
