Leicester city is set to unveil Zambian red hot striker Patson Daka as their new singing next week, according to Italian transfer news expert Fabrizio Romano.
Romano added that the current FA Cup winners beat Liverpool, Chelsea and RB Leipzig to the signature of the Zambia international.
It’s now expected that Daka and Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho will fight for the same position next season.
However, Daka will take Kelechi’s position in the first team when he goes for the Africa cup of nations with his national team as Zambia did not qualify to the Cameroon afcon finals.
The prolific but ageing Jamie Vardy and Iheanacho were manager Brendan Rodgers’ options in attack last season and the duo enjoyed an excellent campaign.
The Nigerian finished as Leicester City’s top scorer in all competitions with nineteen goals while the English star was second best with seventeen strikes.
Considering that Vardy is undroppable by Rodgers, Daka will be directly competing with Iheanacho for the number two position in the pecking order of attackers.
The Super Eagles striker has a contract with Leicester City until June 2024 having signed a new deal two months ago.
Daka finished as league top score with 27 goals in the Austrian bundesliga, and won the player of the season award. He will look to continue with his form in the English premier league next season.
