Leicester eyeing PSG wonderkid Adil Aouchiche


Leicester City are attempting to sign PSG youngster Adil Aouchiche, per Fussball Transfers.

The 17-year-old is a France U18 international and he has already made his senior debut for the Parisian giants.

An attacking midfielder, Aouchiche, has featured once in Ligue 1, playing 65 minutes in central midfield against Metz.

He has also played twice in the Coupe de France, even scoring in a 6-0 win over Linas-Montlhery from the left wing.

A versatile player who can feature through the middle or on the left, the report states that there are a number of clubs attempting to snaffle him away from the Ligue 1 side.

The Foxes are trying to lure him to the Premier League, with Bayer Leverkusen, Saint-Etienne, Stade Rennes and Lille also interested.

He has yet to sign his first professional contract and PSG are said to be keen to keep him.

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

Aouchiche is absolutely a prospect.

At PSG, he has already showed that he has the ability to make an impact in the first-team.

Still just 17, he has yet to nail down his best position but Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has a superb track record of developing players.

The report states that there has yet to be any contact between the two sides, but this could well be a smart move from the Foxes.

Aouchiche can only get better and he can only appreciate in value.

One has to wait and see if he can be convinced to leave the Ligue 1 giants.
