According to The Scottish Sun, Celtic and Leicester City are interested in signing Patrick Roberts in the summer transfer window, and the Manchester City winger should pick the Foxes over the Hoops.

It has been reported that Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers wants to bring Roberts to the King Power Stadium this summer.


Celtic are also claimed to be keen on signing the 22-year-old winger, who is reportedly valued at £4 million.


The former Fulham youngster has already played at Celtic, and he was quite successful during his loan spell at the Glasgow giants from City from January 2016 until the summer of 2018, winning the Scottish league title three times, the Scottish League Cup twice and the Scottish Cup on two occasions with the Hoops.

Celtic fans will welcome Roberts with open arms and the winger will be a success again at Celtic Park, but for the youngster to develop and become a better player in the future, he should pick Leicester.

Not only will Roberts work with Rodgers under whom he played at Celtic, but the Englishman will also get to play in the Premier League - which surely has to be his aim.
