Leicester City are looking at the possibility to land former Manchester United academy ace Adnan Januzaj with an ambitious offer as indicated by reports in England.
Following the £60m transfer of Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City, manager Clause Puel is now keen to add some replacement to their flanks this Summer and apparently has asked Leicester officials about the Belgian.
The youngster effectively broke into the senior team of Manchester United in the Premier League under the direction of then manager David Moyes during the 2013-14 season and was destined for greatness at England.
However, following Moyes’s removal and new manager Van Gaal’s arrival in the next season, the player’s game time turned out to be limited as the player just got seven opportunities at United before he was moved to Dortmund on loan towards the beginning of the 2015-2016.
But likewise there the player also saw openings significantly more hard to obtain and in the accompanying season, he was again sent on a season-long advance to a below the belt side Sunderland team, which ultimately developed as his last show in English soil.
The Belgian player finally was sold the last Summer with a buy-back clause to La Liga side Real Sociedad and since his turn, the player appeared to accomplish his football cadence once more. Januzaj played 35 times for Sociedad last season, scoring four goals in all rivalries.
The Belgian looks to have discovered another rent of life again in Northern Spain and his string of amazing displays, in the long run, convinced Roberto Martinez to include the winger in Belgium’s World Cup squad.
The youngster furthermore scored a brilliant solo on the World Cup to be in the spotlight again and it now seems his World Cup presentations might have activated Leicester to make a move for them.

As of now, Leicester following the sale of Mahrez don’t have many choices on the right flank. Youngster Andy Gray can be a choice in the assault but Puel appeared to be currently searching for a more promising name can to whom he can depend on.
What’s more, Januzaj who is equipped for playing anyplace behind the striker can be a decent addition in their squad. The 23-year-old has played a similar role for his Spanish group the last term just Mahrez used to do for Leicester so it is by all accounts looks a good fit with his capacity to cut in from the wing and utilize the two feet.
However, it is understood that United also have an option of a first refusal on the player if he decides to move from the club however with the current situation, it is unlikely United will make a move for the player.
According to reports, Leicester have not made any official offer yet but with just six days lingering for the conclusion of the window, the transfer procedure could soon be seen now fastened.
