Report: Leicester and AC Milan keen on Le Havre's Josue Casimir
According to a report from Foot Mercato, Leicester City are among the clubs keeping tabs on Le Havre youngster, Josue Casimir.
Casimir, 19, hails from Guadeloupe and is seen as one of the next big emerging talents in the French game. So far, he has yet to play in top tier in France but has played a handful of games in Ligue 2.
The likes of AC Milan are also said to be keeping tabs on his progress, with Leicester the team mentioned when it comes to the Premier League. Interestingly for Leicester, per the report, Casimir could follow a similar path as former winger, Riyad Mahrez.
Foot Mercato state how Le Havre have produced top players in the past such as Mahrez, Paul Pogba, and Benjamin Mendy. They claim that Casimir is hoping to follow in the footsteps of those players.
Still a teenager, Casimir has a long way to go to follow those stars. But he is already catching the eye, and given his versatility at the top of the pitch, he could well have a bright future.
TBR View: Leicester know a bargain when they see one, Casimir must be a talent
Leicester’s record over recent years in identifying players from afar has been outstanding. The likes of Ngolo Kante, the aforementioned Mahrez, and more recently, Wilf Ndidi and Ricardo Pereira, back that up.
Put simply, if you’re in Europe, and Leicester are taking a serious interest in you, then there’s a good chance you’re doing something right.
