Last week, Everton acquired the services of the man partially responsible for Leicester's success - Steve Walsh.
Signing a four-year deal at Goodison Park, Walsh became the club's new Director of Football. At Leicester, he was responsible for the signing of key players in the club's Premier League title-winning season. Riyad Mahrez, N'Golo Kante and Jamie Vardy all arrived at Leicester in Walsh's time.
Before his departure to become Everton's transfer guru, Leicester - presumably at Walsh's behest - were extremely keen on Robbie Brady. The sale of Kante to Chelsea gave Leicester plenty of cash to play with and they were looking to splash part of it on the Irish winger.
It appears Walsh's interest in Brady has not diminished with his new role.
Everton were linked with the 24-year-old prior to their new Director of Football being in place - how serious that interest was thought is tough to tell.
Last night, there was a real indicator that Everton's courting of the Dubliner was taking a step forward. The odds of him signing for the Merseyside club were cut from 14/1 to 6/4. The odds are now even shorter with Sky Bet - 5/6.
Everton have today been cut to 6/4 favourites (from 14/1) to sign Robbie Brady.

While a transfer to Everton rather than Leicester would mean a lack of Champions League football in Brady's life, it would still be an excellent move.
Leighton Baines, the stalwart of Everton's left side, is now 31. A berth there, for many years to come, could soon open up for Brady. Also, just look at what Ronald Koeman did for Shane Long at Southampton. If he could similarly improve Brady, it would undoubtedly aid Ireland's cause in the future.
