Reportedly Leicester City may do battle with Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmumd and Ajax in an attempt to sign teenage winger Akinkunmi Amoo.
Leicester always seem to be on the lookout for talented wingers; that quest has been especially prevalent since the infamous departure of stunningly skilled wideman Riyad Mahrez to the illustrious Manchester City. Despite the impactful influence of Harvey Barnes and Ademola Lookman, the Foxes are linked with a move for fancied upcoming player Akinkunmi Amoo.
Amoo happens to be Nigerian, and the east Midlands outfit currently features two superb Nigeria internationals who are also influential in England: Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Although Iheanacho seems to be out of Brendan Rodgers’ plans presently, he is somewhat of a cult hero on Filbert Way. Lookman is actually awaiting official FIFA cleay enabling him to be a part of the Super Eagles side.
So 19 year old Amoo would be in good company at LCFC; he currently plays for Hammarby IF of the Swedish Allsvenskan division. The diminutive five ft. four in. starlet is chipping is with his fair share of goals and assists in the 2021 campaign, which is partly why he has such notable admirers:
Leicester City were put alongside Valencia, Atlético Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Ajax as clubs who were keen on the winger, and it was stated they had been since before Amoo moved to Hammarby IF in 2020

Leicester City must show corner turned vs Aston Villa
It’s the Villans for Leicester on Sunday afternoon, and the game is difficult to predict for fans and experts alike. Foxes of Leicester see the clash as pretty much unforeseeable due to a slightly similar style of play. Along with two other comparable factors: while Villa players are still attempting to dazzle their new boss with a great impression, LCFC stars flew a little close to the sun and were threatened with being dropped.
Meanwhile the King Power club managed to turn a corner and Steven Gerrard’s team started well under the former Liverpool midfielder. Yet Gerrard’s men lost to Man City in their previous outing – as most do – and therefore will be focused on defeating a Midlands rival to return to form. Brendan Rodgers could be under pressure from a section of Foxes supporters if his side fall to a bad loss.
