LEICESTER have launched a £20million bid for Leeds winger Jack Harrison, according to reports.
Brendan Rodgers has been eager to bolster his squad this month in an attempt to climb the Premier League table after a poor start to the season.
The Foxes have already signed Danish defender Victor Kristiansen in a £17.5million transfer from FC Copenhagen.
And on Friday they successfully hijacked Leeds’ pursuit of Shakhtar Donetsk winger Tete, who spent the first half of the 2022-23 season on loan at Lyon.
Although the deal for the Brazilian is yet to be finalised, Leicester have already started to pursue their next transfer target.
According to The Athletic, the Foxes have made an offer of £20m for Harrison.
The Leeds winger has less than 18 months remaining on his current contract, but Jesse Marsch is eager to offer him an extension.
Harrison spent three seasons on loan at Elland Road from Manchester City before signing a permanent deal with the Peacocks in 2021.
He has since made 185 appearances for Leeds.
While Harrison could be on his way out, Leeds officials are in the process of bringing Juventus star Weston McKennie to the club.
