Barclays Premier League champions Leicester City have agreed a fee of £7.5m with Cracovia to sign Poland winger Bartosz Kapustka in time for the 2016/17 season.

Kapustka represented his country at the Euro 2016 and was impressive, winning the man of the match award in the team’s opening win over Northern Ireland.

He posted a picture on Facebook confirming he is on his way to the EPL champions and even revealed the same to Polish media, stating that manager Claudio Ranieri’s enthusiasm is what spurred him.

“Yes, of all the offers tabled, Leicester wanted me the most,” Kapustka toldTelewizja Polska.

“Ranieri’s interest was a big factor for me. He was asking about me, he wanted me to join the team. This convinced me, but there were many factors.” He said.
