Sportskeeda's take on the EPL transfer rumours of 23rd July
Over the last few days, we’ve been analyzing some of the best transfer rumours doing the rounds. Premier League clubs are expected to break some transfer records this summer, and that means more players getting linked to them.
Today, we talk about the future of Bartosz Kapustka, Kostas Manolas and Riayd Mahrez. We have done an in-depth analysis on the English Premier League transfer rumours of 23rd July.
Bartosz Kapustka to Leicester City
The 19-year-old starlet impressed a number of scouts with his performances for Poland in the 2016 UEFA Euros and Leicester City have reportedly made a £6.25 million bid for the youngster.
Experts say: Simon Jones of the Daily Mail broke the news, with his recent track record being rather accurate, and he is of the opinion that the Foxes’ keenness to complete the deal will see them beat off comeptition from Everton, Southampton, FC Koln and Ajax.
Our take: Kapustka recently signed with agent Bartolomej Bolek, who was involved in Liverpool’s chase of Piotr Zielinski. It seems like the 19 year old has his heart set on a move to the Premier League, having employed an agent who has dealt with English clubs. The youngster can play down the wings or just behind the striker, which sounds eerily close to a certain Riayd Mahrez, rumoured to leave the Foxes for Arsenal. Signing Kapustka, who has the potential to explode into a major star, for just £6.25 million seems exactly like the shrewd business Leicester have come to be known for. This move seems rather likely to happen, even if Mahrez stays with Leicester.
Chances of it happening: 7/10
