Leicester City could land Burnley ace in cut-price deal, Everton set to appoint Ancelotti, and more
Leicestershire Live report that the Foxes could land Tarkowski for £25m due to a strange clause.
Tarkowski reportedly has a £40m release clause, however the clause is only applicable to clubs from the North-West, presumably to cover a move from one of the Manchester giants, or perhaps Liverpool.
As Leicester City are in the Midlands, the clause would only cover to £25m - a decent price for a top defender.
Tarkowski is contracted for a few years yet, and Clarets fans will hope to keep hold of him.
