Leicester City ready to go head-to-head with Nice to sign highly-rated Celtic star

Posted by

Their transfer business has been a little under the radar of late, but Brendan Rodgers finally appears to be making his move on Leicester’s behalf.

According to a tweet from the reliable journalist, Fabrizio Romano, the Midlanders have an agreement in place already to sign Patson Daka from RB Salzburg.

Now it appears that Rodgers has set his sights on a player that he worked with at Celtic.

Arsenal were previously interested in Ryan Christie

According to the Daily Mail, midfielder, Ryan Christie, is being targeted by the Foxes manager. At 26, Christie is the perfect age and, given that his contract with the Scottish giants is up in January, this could be the perfect time for Rodgers to pounce.

There’s still a long way to go of course, not least because Christie is away on international duty with Scotland at the European Championship.

With Celtic in transition too, the player may believe that the time is right to try his luck elsewhere.
