According to reports, Stefano Sensi is now one step away from leaving Inter to join Leicester City FC on a permanent deal.

It had been previously noted that while Leicester was extremely interested in signing Stefano Sensi from Inter, the former Premier League champions would have to make room in their squad to fit the 28-year-old, due to UEFA Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.

Coincidentally, Chelsea officially recalled former Inter Primavera midfielder, Cesare Casadei, from his loan spell at Leicester and will continue the rest of the season with the Blues under Mauricio Pochettino in the Premier League.

This has opened the door for Sensi at Leicester, who initially wanted to sell potentially two midfielders to comply with FFP. SkySport Italy transfer expert, Gianluca Di Marzio has noted that Inter and Leicester have already reached an agreement for the transfer: a €2M deal linked to promotion back to the Premier League, on top of appearances made by Sensi. The Foxes now await word from the English Football Association to ensure they comply with FFP and can proceed with a deal.

Transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano has reported that Sensi has agreed to personal terms with Leicester and that all parties are confident a deal will go through next week after Inter returns from the Supercoppa Italiana in Saudi Arabia.

Furthermore, Italian journalist Nicolò Schira has added that with this small amount of money generated through a deal for Sensi, Inter could look to make a last-minute signing this month in the form of a forward. This is one area to watch as we approach the final week of the January transfer window.
