Report: Everton and West Ham both want Midtjylland's Pione Sisto, Leicester pursuing deal

Denmark Flag

Everton, Leicester City and West Ham United are all pursuing Pione Sisto.

According to the Daily Mail, Leicester City are pushing ahead with a move for Midtjylland's Pione Sisto, but face competition from Everton and West Ham.

Sisto, 21, was born in Uganda to Southern Sudanese parents, but moved to Denmark at a young age, joining Tjorring IF and Horsens before signing for current club Midtjylland.

Since making his debut in the 2013-14 season, Sisto has become one of the most highly-regarded youngsters in Europe, scoring 16 goals in 74 games.

The pacey wide man hit the headlines last month by terrorising Manchester United in the Europa League, scoring a goal in each leg of United's 6-3 aggregate victory.

Unsurprisingly, the winger's exploits have now triggered interest in his signature, and the Daily Mail now claim that three Premier League clubs are looking to make moves for Sisto during this summer's transfer window.

It's stated that Everton and West Ham are both keen to sign Sisto as Roberto Martinez and Slaven Bilic look for options out wide, but league leaders Leicester City are currently in pole position to sign the twice-capped Danish international in a deal which could cost as much as £12m.

The Foxes will be playing Champions League football next season, giving Claudio Ranieri extra power in the transfer market, and a new winger may be needed if star man Riyad Mahrez leaves the King Power Stadium this summer.

Sisto may be one for the future, but he is also a dangerous player right now, and could make an immediate impact in the Premier League if snapped up by Everton, Leicester or West Ham, as seen by his performances against Manchester United in the Europa League.

Would Sisto be better off signing for Everton, Leicester City or West Ham United?
