Rodgers eyes reunion with Patrick Roberts at Leicester

Brendan Rodgers is reportedly interested in signing Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts.

The Leicester boss is preparing for his first summer in charge at the King Power Stadium and is believed to be interested in a deal for the 22-year-old who has just a year remaining on his contract at the Etihad.

Rodgers previously worked with the former Fulham player during his time in charge at Celtic, having signed an 18-month loan deal with the club in January 2016 which was later extended by a further season.

Roberts spent last season on loan at Spanish side Girona but failed to impress during his spell in Spain as the club were relegated from La Liga and could now be available for a cut-price fee this summer.

According to The Sun, Rodgers will target a move for the winger as he bids to inject further pace and creativity into his forward line, with a fee likely to be in the region of £4m.

Roberts has made just one Premier League appearance for Man City, a four minute cameo against Spurs in September 2015.
