The Daily Mirror reports Leicester are hopeful of finally securing long-time target James Tarkowski from Burnley. The 28-year-old defender has 17 months left on his contract but is yet to re-commit to the Clarets, leaving the Foxes with a window to try and land him this summer.

It is believed to be down to a two-horse race for Manchester City defender Eric Garcia. The Daily Express, via Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, says Arsenal and Barcelona are the leading candidates to nab the 21-year-old at the end of the season.
