The biggest story of the Premier League season has been the meteoric rise of the King Power outfit Leicester City.

Manager Claudio Ranieri has worked wonders with the squad at his disposal and has unearthed a number of gems during a Premier League season that has not seen them lose ground often in their race to the Premier League title.

They are just 3 wins away from fulfilling their dream and have already qualified for the Champions League next season.

Though it will not be easy to replicate the form of the current season, Ranieri will want his team to do well in Europe and will have a busy summer transfer window ahead of him at the end of the season.

With the squad needing a lot of additions in many places, it looks like the Italian genius has already made his first addition to his squad.

Spanish news outlet Marca has revealed that the Foxes have completed a deal for Luis Hernandez.

The 26-year old Sporting Gijon defender came through the ranks of Real Madrid during his childhood and has played for Real Madrid Castilla before moving to Gijon.

Hernandez is out of a contract at his current club and is understood to have signed a pre-contract with the Leicester City side from the Premier League.

The Foxes did not get away with his signature without competition as Spanish side Real Betis were also reportedly interested in signing the Spanish international.

But the negotiations between the two teams fell through and it is now understood the Ranieri has got his man for the next season.

It was also revealed that the two parties were in talks over the past few weeks and a deal has now been agreed for a move to England this summer.

Even with many additions to the squad, Ranieri will need the heart of his team, Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and N Golo Kante to stay at the club for at least another season if he wants to stay in the top half of the Premier League table for the second year running.
