Leicester have enquired about Crystal Palace star Andros Townsend, reports claim.

The winger was linked with a move to the Foxes last summer, but stayed at Selhurst Park to help the Eagles avoid relegation.

He was a regular under boss Roy Hodgson, making 39 appearances and scoring twice.

Leicester need a replacement for Manchester City-bound Riyad Mahrez, who is set to complete a £60m transfer in the forthcoming weeks.

And the Daily Mail says Townsend is seen as a player who could fill the void left by Mahrez.

In addition to chasing Townsend, Leicester reportedly want to sign highly-rated winger Patrick Roberts as part of the Mahrez deal.
