Leicester are among the clubs eyeing Noni Madueke as they plot a move to bring the PSV starlet back to England.

Leicester have made an enquiry for the exciting England under-21 winger who is valued at around £15m.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers is a long-term of admirer of former Tottenham youngster Madueke.

Celtic wanted to sign Madueke during Rodgers’ time at the club but the youngster opted to move for Holland.

Madueke’s move, aged 16 and in search of a clearer pathway to senior football than was available at Spurs, has paid off.

He progressed quickly through PSV’s youth setup, made his debut aged 17 the following season and has become a regular in the first-team setup.

Madueke has been one of Europe’s most effective English attacking players this season, maximising his game time to score nine times and set up eight more goals in 29 appearances.

Only 10 of those appearances have been starts, underlining Madueke’s ability to impact matches.

PSV are hoping to retain Madueke, whose current deal runs until 2024, for one more season.

They believe his value could sky rocket if he gets another year in Holland under his belt.

But PSV are braced for bids knowing the main contenders to land Madueke are all on course to be able to offer guaranteed Champions League group stage football next season.

Meanwhile, Ajax are on the verge of winning the Dutch league and the best second-placed PSV can secure is a place in the Champions League qualifiers, providing they hang onto the runners-up spot.
