When it comes to the transfer market, Leicester are simply one of the best in the business.
As per British media, Leicester City are keen to land Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor.
The 27-year-old’s contract at Celtic is set to expire at the end of the 2023/24 campaign.
The midfielder has featured in 44 matches this term, netting 4 goals and providing 7 assists in all competitions.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Scotland. McGregor has earned 29 senior caps for the Scotland national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.
His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Leicester City.
Brendan Rodgers wants to sign a new midfielder and McGregor is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a long term admirer of Callum McGregor and believes he can get the most out of the Scotland international.
The Foxes are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
The Scotland international will offer the Leicester City boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Leicester City are eyeing Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor. The Sun says Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers is a huge fan of the all-action midfielder. The Foxes will spend in the next window but only want a couple of major captures – and both could be from Rodgers’ former club. McGregor, 27, is deeply in contract and not being squeezed out but that will not stop Rodgers trying. He wanted McGregor when he first left but Celtic’s bid for ten titles in a row made that too difficult. Now Celtic are starting again and Rodgers will try his luck. Rodgers is also expected to make a £20million summer bid for French striker Odsonne Edouard.”
