Leicester City close in on £7.5million deal for Polish starlet

Leicester City have agreed a £7.5million fee for Polish winger Bartosz Kapustka, according to Sky Sports.

The Premier League champions have had a busy summer, looking to add to their squad whilst attempting to keep their star performers from last season. Despite losing N’Golo Kante, the Foxes have extended the contract of Jamie Vardy, and wait to see if Riyad Mahrez will commit to the club ahead of the new season.

The 19-year-old has told his followers on Facebook that he is jetting off to Leicester to finalise a transfer.

Kaputska played in all 4 of Poland’s Euro 2016 fixtures, as they were eliminated in the first knockout game by eventual winners Portugal on penalties. The youngster didn’t take a penalty.

It was his strong performances for Cracovia that earned him his spot in the Polish squad, after scoring 4 times in the Ekstraklasa last season.

He will face a race against the clock to agree personal terms and complete a medical in time to face Manchester United in the Community Shield on Sunday August 7th. The transfer could easily be completed in time for him to feature in the Foxes’ first game defending their Premier League crown, away at Hull City on August 13th.
