Leicester discuss the £17m transfer of defender Viktor Kristiansen from FC Copenhagen.

Brendan Rodgers is keen to bring in reinforcements this month as the Foxes sit just two points above the relegation zone after losing all four league games since the World Cup.

Kristiansen has been identified as a transfer target and the Danish club have confirmed Leicester’s approach for the 20-year-old left-back.

Leicester currently have no options at left-back after James Justin suffered a serious knee injury in November that will rule him out for the remainder of the season.

Rodgers has had to deal with a series of injuries at the back and Leicester have conceded 33 goals in their 19 top flight games – only Bournemouth, Southampton and Nottingham Forest have scored more goals.

Kristiansen broke into the Copenhagen first team in the final phase of the 2020-21 season, making 73 appearances for the team.

He has European experience having played in the Champions League and the Europa Conference League.

Leicester have also asked for Fiorentina winger Nicolas Gonzalez but the Italian club are reluctant to sell.

The 24-year-old has had his own fitness issues this season that have limited him to just eight Serie A games.

He has scored twice in those games, including a penalty against Sassuolo earlier this month.
