Leicester continue summer spending spree as 19-year-old Polish target Bartosz Kapustka signs five-year-deal.
Earlier this week it looked as though everything was falling into place for Leicester City to make their fifth signing of the summer and according to reports from the club’s official twitter account this morning, Claudio Ranieri has gotten his man once more.
Polish international Bartosz Kapustka joins the Foxes on a five-year-deal that runs through 2021 and he will wear the No. 14 kit for the foreseeable future.
Bartosz Kapustka was an integral part of Polish side KSC Cracovia having made over 60 appearances for the Krakow based side helping to earn him a place with the Polish National team ahead of this summer’s UEFA European Championships.
It has already been noted in a few previous pieces featured here on Foxes Of Leicester, but it was without a doubt the 19-year-old’s performance for Poland in their match against Ireland that truly saw his stock rise so quickly this summer.
The arrival of Bartosz Kapustka brings added depth to the wide areas for Ranieri and Leicester City and continues to show the strong effort the club is making to be able to compete on all fronts this coming campaign.
With the club set to face off against FC Barcelona tonight in Stockholm for the club’s final preseason friendly in the International Champions Cup tonight, Bartosz Kapustka is already on his way to link up with his teammates in Sweden.
It is not known if he will have an opportunity to feature with his new side tonight, but it is possible as a means of at least getting a few minutes on the pitch could prove vital should he be needed this weekend as the Foxes open their English campaign against Manchester United in the FA Community Shield this Sunday.
