Ghanaian international Daniel Amartey is set to make his debut for Leicester City this weekend when the Foxes host Norwich City in a Barclays Premier League week 27 fixture.
Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri believes Amartey who moved to the King Power in January from Copenhagen for a reported fee of £6m is now ready for the EPL challenge.
Following the suspension of Danny Simpson, the Ghanaian who is yet to make his debut for Leicester will be given a llok in by the Foxes manager Ranieri as they aim to extend their lead on the Premier League log against Alex Neil’s side on Saturday.
When asked if Amartey is ready to play on Saturday, Ranieri said: “I think so.
“He played against Manchester City in the Under-21s, he played 90 minutes. He is ready.”
Amartey joined the club from FC Copenhagen in January and Ranieri thinks the 21-year-old Ghana international’s versatility will be beneficial.
Right-back Danny Simpson is suspended after being sent-off against Arsenal and Amartey could take his place.
Leicester have conceded just three goals in their last eight Premier League matches at the King Power Stadium and have gone six hours and 13 minutes since they last conceded on home soil.
Norwich who have have won just one and lost nine of the last 12 Premier League away games have gone 13 Premier League games on the road without a clean sheet.
