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