Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers targets Callum McGregor transfer and wants Celtic star to join him at King Power Stadium

LEICESTER CITY boss Brendan Rodgers looks set to try his luck with a bid for his Celtic old-boy Callum McGregor.

Rodgers is a huge fan of the all-action midfielder.

The Foxes will spend in the next window but only want a couple of major captures.

And both potential transfers could be from Rodgers' former club.

McGregor, 27, is under a long contract in Scotland, but that will not stop the Northern Irishman from trying to secure his services.

He wanted McGregor when he first left, but Celtic's bid for ten titles in a row made that too difficult.

Now Celtic are starting again and Rodgers will look to try his luck.

McGregor has featured in 44 games in all competitions for the Hoops this term, where he has chipped in with four goals and seven assists.

The former Liverpool manager is also expected to make a £20million summer bid for French striker Odsonne Edouard.

Edouard is understood to have been identified as a long-term replacement for centre-forward Jamie Vardy.


The 23-year-old has hit 20 goals for Celtic in three consecutive campaigns, with the player 17 goals shy of a century of strikes for the Glaswegian outfit.

And he left fans purring over the international break after he scored a sumptuous chip during France U21s victory against Iceland.

It was his 17th goal for the U21s in just his 13th cap.
