Leicester City eyeing move for exciting winger, Man Utd also keen on deal

ranieriThe Leicester City fans are gathered at the pool table in The Transfer Tavern discussing reports linking the club with a summer move for a French winger.

The Daily Mail is reporting via Football 365 that Claudio Ranieri has set his sights on Rennes winger Ousmane Dembele.

The 18-year-old has put in some impressive displays for the Ligue 1 side so far this season, and is tipped to have the potential to be the next top talent to emerge from France.

Leicester are no strangers for dipping into France for unknown players, and this was shown during the summer when they signed Riyad Mahrez from Le Havre for £400,000.

Dembele has scored four goals in nine games for Rennes this season and is capped by France at Under 19 level.

The Premier League leaders will face a battle to get their man with Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Southampton also keeping an eye on the youngster;s progress.

The Leicester fans in The Tavern are delighted to be linked with Dembele and are of the firm belief that if he is half as good as Mahrez as has been for them, then he could prove to be an asset to their squad.

Foxes fans…. Happy with this news? Next Mahrez? Let us know below!
