Report: Leicester to return with second bid for FC Copenhagen's Daniel Amartey

The Ghanaian is reportedly being tracked by a number of clubs across Europe.

The Foxes are said to have had their first offer rejected, but will return with improved terms this week for a player who came close to joining Liverpool as a teenager.

The 20-year old has been lauded as one of the brightest prospects in Ghanaian football and his step up to a bigger stage is seemingly inevitable, with Roma and Juventus previously linked - as reported by

What would he add?

Comfortable playing in central defence or in a holding midfield role, Amartey plays with a composure and awareness that belies his age.

He has a fondness for bursting runs from deep areas and has the mobility to recover if ever caught out of position.

His passing range is proficient and he has a knack for grabbing a spectacular goal or two.

Leicester have been determined in their bid to replace Esteban Cambiasso, and the signing of N’Golo Kante was a fantastic start.

Amartey’s capture, however, would possibly be an even bigger coup given his age and potential, and his versatility could prove vital for Claudio Ranieri’s side.
