This is according to Toro.
it, who claims the midfielder is also the ‘dream of many fans’ as talks of a possible return to the club heats up.
Fans have left messages on the player’s social media sites imploring him to return to the club where he was on loan last season.
Praet left a ‘wonderful memory’ with everyone at the club, so much so that the club’s choice not to sign him permanently in the summer was met with scorn from all sides.
He has, though, remained on their radar, and fortunately for them, their good feelings are reciprocated by the player, who would ‘gladly return’ if given the chase.
He waited until the last minute for a deal to happen in the summer but was forced to stay in England, where he has stayed on the sidelines under Brendan Rodgers.
That saw him miss out on a place in Belgium’s squad for the World Cup and he wants out in the January transfer window.
Leicester has ‘already opened the door’ to a potential exit, but would prefer to sell him fully in the summer rather than in January.
The two teams have been working on a prospective agreement that would benefit all parties, with a loan deal that contains a purchase obligation at the end.
Contacts between the two clubs are ongoing, but there is a sense that, despite Torino’s best efforts, Leicester is not ‘in a hurry to reach a deal.’
That’s because Leicester is aware that Praet is liked by other teams and is attempting to determine whether the option of starting an auction’ and raising the player’s price tag exists.
