Karl Toko Ekambi of Angers
The Premier League duo are expected to rival Ligue 1 duo for the services of the Indomitable Lions forward

Premier League pair Leicester City and Watford are reported to be chasing signature of Angers forward Karl Toko Ekambi.

The 24-year-old found the net seven times for Angers last season and he is alleged to be considering his options during the current transfer window with Bordeaux and Rennes already expressing interest.

But according to L’Equipe, Leicester and Watford are also chasing the Cameroonian international.

The English pair are said to have watched the forward in action last season and they believe he would suit English football.

Angers, however, would preferably like to retain the Paris-born forward and will not consider a sale unless they can get in an adequate replacement.
