Liverpool target Leicester starlet for surprise transfer

As Leicester City await the challenge of Manchester United at King Power Stadium, it appears Liverpool want to sign Foxes starlet, Harvey Barnes.

With the arrival of Manchester United in Leicestershire, Brendan Rodgers’ team will be absolutely focussed on attaining their rightful entry into the Champions League for 2020/21. Leicester City should have already secured it, but worryingly poor form since the Premier League restart meant a scrap with the Red Devils along with Chelsea for the two remaining spots.

Although, the business of footballers never ceases, even with momentous matches afoot. Consequently, James Maddison has reportedly, finally signed his new Foxes contract. An automatic boost for the squad; regardless of the playmaker being unavailable for the crunch United clash.

However, the latest surprising link has been made with champions Liverpool and Leicester City. If you believe the weekend’s transfer gossip, and Daily Mail, Foxes winger Harvey Barnes is being targeted for a transfer by the Reds.
