One of the stars at Club Brugge these days despite only being 21 years of age, Charles De Ketelaere is unlikely to stick around the Belgian club much longer.
The versatile midfielder, who can also play further up the pitch, has scored 18 goals and assisted another nine this season 46 appearances, and caught the eye of many clubs in Europe.
Among those are said to be Leicester City, who have been touted as an ideal next step for the Belgium international going forward.
In fact, the Foxes were said to be in pole position to sign De Ketelaere not too long ago, but Corriere dello Sport make it clear on Wednesday they would face competition for his signing.
Lazio are one of the clubs eyeing him up, while Milan, Naples and Leicester ‘have asked for information about him’.
His deal with Club Brugge expires in 2024, meaning there’s no rush for a sale just yet, but if the Jupiler Pro League side want to maximise their income, this year would be their best bet.
We’ll now have to wait and see whether Brendan Rodgers will push for this transfer at Leicester or not, with a lot likely riding on the exit of Youri Tielemans.
