According to the Daily Mail, Leicester City are interested in bringing Luton Town defender James Justin to the King Power Stadium this summer.

The Foxes have shown real potential under Brendan Rodgers, and look primed to push for European football next season given the talent at Rodgers' disposal.

 

Leicester will still be in the market for signings though, and with Danny Simpson leaving and Christian Fuchs ageing, a new full back appears to be on the radar.

Now, the Daily Mail claim that Leicester are interested in snapping up Luton ace Justin, who played a key part in the Hatters winning the League One title this season.

Justin, 21, was born in Luton and has come up through the ranks at Kenilworth Road, starring at both right back and left back having shown his versatility.

That fits in well at Leicester, with Rodgers seemingly keen to develop Justin behind Ricardo Pereira and Ben Chilwell, adding a young talent to play in both full backs positions.

Luton would allegedly want around £5million for the talented youngster, and Leicester may look to pip Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion to his signature by offering him a Premier League move.
