Leicester enter Noni Madueke transfer race with England U21 ace valued at £15m by PSV but face competition from AC Milan

LEICESTER are reportedly one of four clubs looking to lure PSV winger Noni Madueke away from Holland in the summer.

The 19-year-old – who made his England Under-21 debut in March – has earned rave reviews this season after breaking into the first-team.

Madueke has chipped in with nine goals and eight assists in 19 games in all competitions, with his performances not going unnoticed.

According to the Daily Mail, Leicester have made an enquiry to sign the teenager, who is valued at around £15million.

Brendan Rodgers is claimed to be a long-time admirer of the forward having failed to sign him whilst managing Celtic.

But the Foxes aren't the only team that are looking to securing Madueke's services, with Serie A giants AC Milan also in the hunt.

Meanwhile Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig are another interested party, along with Ligue 1 leaders Lille.

It has been stated that PSV are keen to keep Madueke at the Philips Stadion for one more year as they believe his price tag will soar.

PSV are in no rush to sell the former Tottenham academy star, who is tied down at the club until 2024.

Madueke joined PSV in 2018 after rejecting a contract offer from Spurs, while he even turned down an approach from Manchester United.

The player spoke to SunSport in December where he revealed how the club's U19s coach Ruud van Nistelrooy has been honing his finishing.

He said: "Ruud helped me a lot last year, taking my game to the next level and now I am just trying to get better every day.

“I have always scored nice goals but I know I needed to score easier ones — being in the right place at the right time — striker-type finishes.

"Ruud has been teaching me how to get into those positions more and, being a Manchester United fan, I know he is the master of that.”
