Leicester bid £6.25m for wonderkid, Everton also interested

Leicester City have started the bidding for Polish wonder kid Bartosz Kapustka by offering £6.25 million for the central midfielder, according to The Daily Mail.

Everton and Southampton are both monitoring the situation according to the latest report, with the 19-year-old seemingly set to move to England ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.

Kapustka is on the books of boyhood club Cracovia, who will struggle to hold onto the star player given the financial power of the Premier League suitors.

The teenager was selected in Poland’s Euro 2016 squad and featured in the tournament despite a host of attacking midfield options at the Eastern European outfit’s disposal.

Leicester are looking to bolster Claudio Ranieri’s squad ahead of the 2016-17 campaign, with the English champions set to feature in European competition and be thoroughly tested both domestically and on the continent next season.

The Foxes could well start a bidding tug of war for the starlet as other Premier League sides circle.
