Leicester City are interested in the services of PSV winger, Noni Madueke.
The 20-year old England U-21 international has been impressive since joining the Dutch giants from Tottenham Academy in 2018.
He has contributed 14 goals in 30 games this season across all competitions and is impressing at the Phillips Stadium.
With the Foxes hosting the Eredivisie campaigners today in the Europa Conference League quarterfinals, Leicester have ample opportunity to take another look at the winger.
Leicester City head coach, Brendan Rodgers is also a huge fan of the winger and sang his praises ahead of their game at the King Power Stadium.
“He’s done really well,” Rodgers said.
“He came through the system over here but clearly felt he wanted to play first-team football and maybe there was that opportunity abroad. You’ve seen other young players do that, going into Germany and into Holland.
“He’s a talented player, he’s physically very good, he’s got a nice left foot, he’s dynamic, he wants to run in behind, so he’s a threat. I know he plays with Luke (Thomas) in the Under-21s. He’ll be a threat I’m sure.”
Madueke is yet to represent England or any country at the senior level but is eligible to represent Nigeria and the Three Lions.
He was born in the UK to Nigerian parents.
