Leicester City are the latest Premier League outfit to join the race for the signature of RB Salzburg sensation Patson Daka. The striker enjoyed a spectacular campaign, scoring 29 goals in 36 games which has put a number of top clubs on high alert.

The Foxes do not quite have the big club allure of a Liverpool or Chelsea, but with Jamie Vardy now 34-years-old Daka could be tempted by the possibility of increased first-team opportunities at the King Power Stadium.

Indeed, boss Brendan Rodgers is believed to see the Zambia international as Vardy’s long-term heir, although the scintillating form of Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho could make Daka’s task of slotting straight into the side more difficult than it appears.

Although, Iheanacho’s overall play since joining the club in 2017 has been patchy at best, meaning Rodgers may feel reluctant to pin all his hopes on the 24-year-old in case his streak falls flat once again.
