Leicester are now monitoring Enzo Le Fee




Leicester City are looking for Lorient midfielder Enzo Le Fee ahead of a potential transfer in 2023, according to reports.

The Lowdown: The Streamlined Fee

The Frenchman has come through the ranks at Stade du Moustoir and has now secured a starting spot under Regis Le Bris, having been a standout performer for Les Merlus this season.

Although he still has almost two years left on his current contract, the 22-year-old has attracted interest from potential suitors across the Channel, and there are four clubs who want to bring him to the Premier League.

The latest: Leicester eyeing Le Fee

According to 90min, Leicester are joined by Newcastle, West Ham and Fulham in having ‘spotted’ Le Fee this season, with the English quartet following him ‘closely’.

Lorient are reportedly ready to ‘open talks’ over new terms with the 22-year-old amid this interest, although it is said they will ‘find it difficult’ to keep him.

The verdict: the replacement of Tielemans

King Power Stadium favorite Youri Tielemans could be set to leave next summer after his contract expires and amid reported interest from Newcastle. If he moves on, Le Fee would be a perfect long-term replacement.

Double ‘incredible’ by talent scout Jacek Kulig, the maestro is a creative playmaker just like the Belgian, having bagged two goals and two assists this season, as well as averaging 2.8 assists per league game (WhoScored).

This figure is slightly higher than James Maddison’s average of 2.5 per game at Leicester (WhoScored).

Brendan Rodgers would also be given a versatile operator, with Le Fee having also played as a winger, so there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be a heavenly game.
