Ahead of their Champions League tie on Wednesday, Spanish outlet, ?Mundo Deportivo reported that former Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri made Partey one of his main transfer targets last summer.

The 22-year-old was given 15 minutes of the game in which the Spanish side won 1-0 ahead of the second leg next week.
