Tottenham want Leicester duo
The north London club have been interested in England striker Vardy for some time but he is not the only name in the frame at White Hart Lane.
It is understood Kante would be of more interest to Mauricio Pochettino.
Losing the midfielder, signed last season by the Foxes for £5.5million, would be a huge blow to Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri.
But he has four other central midfielders – Danny Drinkwater, Matty James, Andy King and Goekhan Inler. The Foxes are also close to adding Daniel Amartey to their squad from FC Copenhagen.
