It seems Leicester City are on the verge of quite an impressive coup, according to the local Polish media.
Standing out in a sometimes lacklustre Poland international team when brought on from the bench, Bartosz Kapustka is on the verge of joining the Premier League champions.
According to Przeglad Sportowy, Cracovia Krakow, the player’s current club, have accepted a bid from Leicester for the young winger and have given him permission to discuss personal terms.
The Polish newspaper claim that all of it should be done in the next few days, meaning an announcement before the weekend could be a possibility.
After rejecting an original bid of €5m, Krakow caved in when Ranieri’s side upped their bid to €5.5m + €1m in bonuses, which would make him the most expensive Ekstraklasa transfer of all time.
Przeglad state the player was a Steve Walsh find, who also suggested him to his new employers Everton, but Leicester beat them to it in the end.
The left-winger scored five goals and got 10 assists for Krakow last season in 35 appearances, and will team up with fellow Polish football Marcin Wasilewski at Leicester.
