Brendan Rodgers wants Bournemouth's Callum Wilson at Leicester City next season, according to The Sun. The newspaper claims Rodgers, who left Celtic to become Leicester's new manager on Tuesday, is looking to make a number of changes to the squad he inherited from Claude Puel.

 

And those are said to include a revamp of the Foxes' strike force, of which only Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho and Islam Slimani are under contract beyond the summer transfer window.

The Sun adds, however, that Wilson could cost up to £40 million, having scored or assisted 15 Premier League goals for Bournemouth this season and recently made his England debut.

And it claims the Coventry-born player could be tempted by a move to Leicester, although Chelsea and West Ham United are also credited with an interest.

Celtic trio Kieran Tierney (The Sun), Callum McGregor and James Forrest (both The Times.), a left-back, central midfielder and winger, respectively, are also said to feature on Rodgers' Leicester wishlist.

Which players would you like the former Celtic boss to sign for Leicester City? Is the Bournemouth man one?
