Leicester City look set to reignite their interest in Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor this summer.
According to The Sun, ‘Brendan Rodgers looks set to try his luck with a bid’ in the summer window.
Leicester’s previous McGregor interest
The Foxes made enquiries for the central midfielder in 2019 and 2020 and it seems as if they haven’t given up hope in signing the Scotland international at the third time of asking.
Would you sell Callum McGregor?
McGregor, who is on £20,000-a-week at Parkhead, has started every Premiership fixture for the Hoops this season, taking the armband whenever Scott Brown has been absent.
Transfer Tavern take
Reports back in February suggested that McGregor was in line to become Celtic’s new full-time captain and commit the rest of his career to the Hoops in the process.
That may well still be the case, but it seems as if Rodgers will once again look to take the 27-year-old to the King Power Stadium.
Hopefully McGregor won’t have his head turned to play in the Premier League, as in our view, he could be crucial under likely new manager Eddie Howe.
He will be one of the most experienced members of the squad alongside James Forrest when Brown departs, and should McGregor leave, the middle of midfield may need strengthening considerably.
