Most recent daka

Leicester City are closing in on Red Bull Salzburg striker Patson Daka.

The Foxes have made no secret of their desire to bring a new forward into the summer transfer window as Brendan Rodgers look to add more support for Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho to the squad.

Daka has been one of the names of fans across Europe this summer due to his impressive scoring record in Austria.

Liverpool and Chelsea have been credited with an interest in the forward, who scored 34 goals in all competitions last season.

However, it looks like City have won the race for his signing.

Daka himself has provided an update on his future and it looks like a deal could be done soon.


Milestone Schmeichel

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel described the “appeal” the club now have after a decade of development.

The Denmark international signed for the club 10 years ago today (Sunday) and has certainly been through a lot during that time.

Schmeichel joined the team in 2011, under the management of former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson. He has since won the Championship, Premier League, FA Cup as well as Champions League and Europa League with the club.

On the anniversary of the decade, the goalkeeper reviewed the years since his arrival and the growth the club experienced during that time.

“I joined the championship and it was a team that had just been taken over and I think the world has seen so many takeovers by wealthy owners. official site.


The Guardian’s Cat Unveiled

Danny Ward couldn’t keep endemic Denmark at bay, but Leicester City team-mate Kasper Schmeichel was delighted his deputy could show off his talents on the world stage.

Ward and Schmeichel met at Euro 2020 on Saturday night as Wales succumbed 4-0 to the Danes in the round of 16.

It was the first time that two goalkeepers from the same club had met in a European Championships game, and it ended with City number one winning as Kasper Dolberg scored twice before Joakim Maehle and Martin Braithwaite did add late arrivals to top off a superb performance.

Ward was unable to produce the heroism that saved Wales in the group stages, but Schmeichel was quick to tell his team-mate how successful he was when they met after the match.

In a live-streamed instant, the two town guards chatted and then kissed as they made their way to the tunnel full-time.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Schmeichel revealed details of their conversation.


Smith transfer position

Dundee United boss Tam Courts has addressed transfer speculation linking teenage starlet Kerr Smith to a move to Leicester City.

Leicester have reportedly edged rivals Manchester United and Aston Villa in the race to sign the 16-year-old defender.

The Foxes are said to be keen to activate a clause in the center-back’s contract that would allow them to buy him for around £ 500,000.

Smith signed his first professional contract in December and it is understood his release clause will increase as he makes more first-team appearances for the Scottish club.

Newly appointed head coach Courts – who was previously responsible for tactical performances – insisted he was relaxed about it.

Ghezzal update

Leicester City have reportedly set the asking price for winger Rachid Ghezzal.

Ghezzal spent the 2020-21 season on loan at Besiktas and had a big impact there.

The 29-year-old has scored eight goals and provided 18 assists in 35 appearances as he helped the Turkish side clinch a league-cup double.

Besiktas is keen to retain the player’s services on a permanent basis and he does not appear to feature in Brendan Rodgers’ future plans, so a move could be considered this summer.

Turkish media outlet Fanatik reports Leicester want € 6million for Ghezzal (around £ 5.16million), who still has a year left to fulfill his contract at King Power Stadium.
