Leicester Join Race For Teenage Irish Hitman

Leicester City are the latest club to be interested in highly-rated Irish teenage striker Ali Reghba. The 18-year-old, who currently plies his trade for League of Ireland side Bohemians, has already alerted several English clubs to his capabilities, with Middlesbrough recently handing him a two-week trial spell.

It is believed that Reghba impressed the Teesside club, although their Championship rivals Leeds United and Brentford are also believed to be keen to take him.

 

Fresh reports have now linked the Foxes with a move and boss Claude Puel is thought to be ready to take Reghba on trial at the King Power Stadium with a view to handing him a contract.

 

Reports also claim Leicester are the new frontrunners for his services because they have the pull of Premier League football and a proven track record at giving young players a chance to progress, having brought in the likes of James Maddison and Demarai Gray in recent years.
