Arsenal and Manchester United want to sign Leicester City defender Harry Maguire in the summer transfer window, according to a report.

The Sun is reporting that Maguire could play his final game in a Leicester shirt when the Foxes take on Chelsea FC at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The same article states that the 26-year-old is set to be in demand this summer as Arsenal, Chelsea FC, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are all keen on the England international.

According to the same story, Leicester are set to ask £60m for the England defender, which shouldn’t come as a surprise given the level of interest in Maguire.

The Sun report goes on to add that Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers won’t be tempted to sell Maguire for less than a record fee for a British defender, which would eclipse the fees Manchester City paid for English duo Kyle Walker and John Stones.

Maguire has seen his stock rise over the past 12 months after the Leicester defender impressed during England’s run to the World Cup semi-final before a loss to Croatia.

The Leicester star has scored three times in 30 games in the Premier League in the current campaign to help the Foxes secure a comfortable finish in mid-table.
