Leicester City are reportedly up against Premier League rivals Brighton in the race to seal the transfer of Millwall wonderkid Zak Lovelace.

The 16-year-old has shown real promise in his career so far, impressing at youth level and already playing in the first-team for Championship outfit Millwall.

It’s fair to say that Lovelace could soon be playing at an even higher level as Premier League sides show a strong interest in trying to snap him up.

Leicester are leading the race for the England teenager, but the Leicester Mercury claim that Brighton could also be in the running for him in the summer.
