Manchester City are interested in signing Harry Maguire but would have to make him the world’s most expensive defender to bring him to the Etihad.
Pep Guardiola wants to sign a replacement for captain Vincent Kompany, who will join Anderlecht as player-manager when his contract expires this summer.
Leicester are said to want £90m for the England international, which would eclipse the £75m Liverpool paid for Virgil van Dijk when they made the Dutchman the most expensive defender ever in January 2018.
Foxes boss Rodgers is desperate to keep Maguire, who only signed a new five-year deal last September.
