A report from AS in Spain claims that the Premier League could gain a superstar while losing one of the key components from Leicester City’s title run.

Toni Kroos might be signed until 2020, but the report says that Real Madrid’s German star is ready to leave town for a more prominent role on another club.

Both the Bundesliga and the Premier League are tipped as destinations for Kroos, with Arsenal tempted to combine him with fellow ex-Madrid star Mesut Ozil in the midfield.

Meanwhile, Madrid is apparently looking to stabilize its core while taking a bite out of the Foxes. With apologies to Riyad Mahrez and Wes Morgan, N'Golo Kante may be the most important player on Leicester. Would he be wooed by the bright lights of Spain?

Oddly enough, his price is quoted as something that would make him attractive to big-spending Madrid, as is his tenacity in defense. That would allow players like Cristiano Ronaldo and James Rodriguez to eschew more of their responsibilities. There’s a way to operate a club!
