Could Yohan Benalouane Be Our Next Defensive Addition?

Well according to the rumour mill he could be on his way to try and help shore up a defence that has let in 14 goals in the last 4 games

Norwich City are reportedly in 'pole position' to sign Leicester City defender Yohan Benalouane, according to Tutto Mercato Webb in Italy.

Benalouane is a 28 year old, 6'2' central defender who signed for Leicester last summer from Atalanta in Serie A for a reported fee of €8m. He has struggled for game time, having made just four appearances for Leicester, with Robert Huth and Wes Morgan being the number one defensive partnership.

Leicester are understood to be willing to listen to loan offers for the player and would loan him to Norwich as the two clubs are not in direct competition in the league.

Fiorentina and Sampdoria have shown interest in Benalouane in this window but TMW claim that a move along the A14 to Norwich is most likely.
