Everton and Leicester like Ismael Doukoure
Posted On April 12, 2021
Everton and Leicester City have been linked with very talented young Frenchman Ismael Doukoure.
The 17-year-old has made a name for himself with Valenciennes in Ligue 2 and he could be on the move this summer.
According to La Voix des Sports (translated by Sportwitness), Barcelona, Juventus, Borussia Monchengladbach, Arsenal, Leicester and Everton like the youngster.
The report further states that the French side may agree to sell the young defender for around € 6-8million this summer due to financial pressure. Clubs have been hit hard by the Covid-19 crisis and a few sales could help them cope with the losses.
Everton and Leicester are certainly financially capable of spending that kind of money on the 17-year-old defensive talent and it will be interesting to see where Doukoure ends up in the months to come.
The Frenchman is a prodigious young talent with a huge future ahead of him and if players like Everton or Leicester can nurture him properly over the next few years he could become a quality first-team player for them.
Leicester have already seen the benefits of investing in quality talent like Wesley Fofana and they are hoping to get their hands on another talented young Frenchman.
As far as the player is concerned, a move to Goodison Park or King Power Stadium could be the ideal next step in his development. Both clubs have been very successful in developing young talent over the years and they can help the Frenchman realize his potential.
