Leicester City are reportedly interested in signing Wolves winger Bakary Sako, according to the Express & Star.

The Mali international is out-of-contract at the end of the month and City boss Nigel Pearson is looking to bolster his wide options following his side’s impressive great escape in May.

Sako, 27, has scored 36 goals in 118 league games for Wolves and has been a central figure in the club’s resurgence under Kenny Jackett over the past two seasons.

Leicester have been interested in the past, enquiring about the left-foot talisman back in January but Pearson was put off by the £2.5 million price tag slapped on him by the Molyneux outfit.

Sako is certainly a more attractive proposition now but his services will not come cheap.

Reports suggest Leicester have offered a contract worth £50,000 a-week but Sako may demand more.

City will also have to fight off interest from a host of other Premier League clubs with Everton, Newcastle, Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion all linked with Jackett’s man.

Sako would certainly add a different dimension to the City squad.

Although already blessed with the speed, athleticism and versatility of Jeff Schlupp, Sako has impressed in his last couple of seasons at the Molineux and has the reputation for a direct approach and rocket of a shot.

City have already strengthened their left side with the arrival of experienced Austrian Christian Fuchs.
