His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Leicester City.

Brendan Rodgers wants to sign a new left-back and Charlie Taylor is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Rodgers is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.

Charlie Taylor would provide a good variety to Leicester City’s defense.

According to the report, “Leicester City are interested in signing Charlie Taylor from Burnley. The left-back is one of many that Leicester are monitoring, because they are aware of big clubs having an interest in Ben Chilwell. The latter is likely to be the subject of bids from the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham in the summer. If he chooses to leave, Leicester would look at Taylor as an alternative, per The Times. While Leicester and manager Brendan Rodgers do not want to lose Chilwell, they would rather be prepared. The club understands that even if they make the Champions League, a big money offer for a left back may be too much to turn down.”

Burnley would be wise to keep the England international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

The 26-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Leicester squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.

Leicester fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see what happens when Leicester come calling for Taylor this summer.
