Leicester City have had a second bid of around £25 million rejected for Troy Deeney and will have to pay in the region of £30million to convince the Hornets to sell their club captain according to reports.

Leicester City have prioritised the striker position this summer as the club look set to play in the Champions League next season.

Deeney, who performed impressively for Watford last season scored 15 goals in all competitions has caught the eye of the Premier League champions.

Deeney now wants to play Champions League football under Claudio Ranieri after several ups and downs in his career he is now ready to take the next step, but Watford feel that with four years left on his contract they are under no pressure to sell.

Leicester have already proposed a contract with personal terms on to Deeney and the player has agreed to it, with the club having to now agree a price with Watford.

The 6ft tall striker has been with Watford since 2010 and has gone onto to play 243 times for the club scoring 90 goals, also securing promotion to the Premier League.

Vardy fired Leicester to the league title and broke the clubs goal-scoring record last season, he managed 0.69 goals per 90 minutes compared to Deeney who managed 0.36. Deeney however, created more chances than Vardy with 1.53 with the latter managing 1.32. Deeney also comes out on top with assists 0.19 whilst Vardy scores 0.17.

Leicester City want Troy Deeney regardless of the future of Vardy, the striker had his release clause met by Arsenal but it is now likely the striker will sign a new deal with Leicester as the club look to compliment him in partnering Vardy with Deeney next season.

Waford will fight hard to keep hold of their star player and have rejected the opening two bids, but with the player desperate for the move they could sanction the move if the price is right.
