  • Leicester set to swoop for Sevilla midfielder Iborra

Leicester City have agreed a deal to sign Sevilla captain Vincente Iborra the Spanish club have announced.

Following Sevilla's defeat to the Foxes in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 last season, many of Sevilla's players made remarks about the atmosphere at the King Power Stadium in the second leg where Leicester sealed their passage to the quarterfinals.

It is thought that he will join up at the side later this week, with speculation still surfacing that Riyad Mahrez will be making a move out of the 2015/16 Premier League champions, with North London side Arsenal looming.

The former even agreed a fee for Iborra last season but the plug was pulled on the deal at the last minute by Sevilla, with the Spaniards instead electing to keep their captain.

Leicester missed N'Golo Kante during the 2016-17 season and will hope Iborra can fill the void left by the Frenchman after he left for Chelsea, winning another Premier League title with the Blues.

IMF cuts US growth outlook
Elsewhere, the International Monetary Fund said the U.S. tax system was in need of fundamental reform and radical simplification. Growth was revised down to 2.1 per cent from 2.3 per cent this year and to 2.1 per cent from 2.5 per cent next year.

'Once the transfer is concluded, he will return to Seville to publicly bid farewell to the fans'.

Iborra, who can also operate as a forward, has scored 30 goals in 172 games since joining Sevilla from Levante four years ago.

Iborra is also composed in possession, as demonstrated by the fact that he was successful with 82% of the passes that he attempted in La Liga last season.

The statement read: "Sevilla and Leicester City have reached an agreement in principle for the transfer of Vicente Iborra".
