Kolo Toure is reportedly trying to talk Brendan Rodgers into making a move to sign16-year-old Celtic talent Tsoanelo Letsosa.
A report emerged on Monday suggesting that interest in the teenager was high after 60 scouts watched him turn in a man of the match display for Scotland’s Under-16s earlier this month.
And according to Football Insider, Leicester City are said to be one of the front runners in the race to sign the 16-year-old, with Toure said to be a “strong admirer” of Letsosa.

News of Leicester tracking Letsosa will come as no surprise, given how the likes of Toure and Brendan Rodgers would have previously seen the talent the 16-year-old possesses.
Celtic however must do everything they can to ensure Letsosa, who Football Insider label a “wonderkid,” stays at the club.
The Hoops will not want a repeat of Liam Morrison’s situation from last summer, when the highly rated defender left the club to join Bayern Munich after rejecting a new deal.
