Leicester City will host rising superpower AS Monaco in a friendly next month according to the Ligue 1 club's website.

Monaco have caused a stir in the transfer market this summer, having spent more than £110m on superstars Radamel Falcao, James Rodriguez and João Moutinho after Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev's purchase of the club.

Falcao is one of the most prolific strikers in the world, scoring 28 league goals in 36 matches.

The friendly is expected to take place on 27 July.
