Leicester City are reportedly interested in signing PSV Eindhoven superstar Noni Madueke, with both Leeds United and Tottenham also in the race to sign the England youth international.

According to the Telegraph, the former Tottenham academy star is on Brendan Rodgers’ radar as Leicester eye their first signing of the summer, with the Foxes waiting to offload some players before bringing in some fresh faces three weeks before the start of the Premier League season.

Madueke has been one of the many England success stories in recent years of a talented player taking their skills to the continent and forging a name for themselves, with the 20-year-old winger one of PSV’s best players since breaking into the first team in 2020, with the Dutch club reportedly valuing the youngster at £40m.

A confident player who in an interview likened his style of play to footballing legend Lionel Messi, Madueke suffered a tough 2021/22 season with the London-born winger spending most of the year out with injury, with the attacker’s form also taking a hit as the PSV star bagged just nine goals and six assists in all competitions.

Indeed, Madueke would be an ideal signing for Leicester and would fit the club’s transfer policy, with the Foxes arguably one of the most effective Premier League sides in the market for bringing in players at bargain prices who fit Rodgers’ style of play.

However, after the disappointment of last season, Leicester have struggled to get off the ground this summer, with the club waiting to sell a key player before they can make a move for the likes of Madueke, who could be an outstanding signing for the King Power Stadium side.

As mentioned, Leicester are not the only English side interested in Madueke, with both Leeds and Tottenham reportedly chasing the England youth international, as well as Newcastle United, yet the Foxes could have the strongest case for signing the youngster, though time is running out for Rodgers and company.

Indeed, with the season just three weeks away from starting, Leicester need to start making some signings, and with the right-wing position in need of strenghting, Madueke could be a fantastic and exciting addition for the Foxes ahead of what is a huge year for the 2016 Premier League champions.
