Leicester City are one of the clubs chasing Aaron Evans-Harriott, according to reports.
Cheltenham Town youngster Evans-Harriott is already making an impression and has been attracting attention. According to Gloucestershire Live, a host of top-flight clubs are hoping to sign Evans-Harriott, including Leicester City.
Evans-Harriott is already in and around the first-team despite his young age. The 17-year-old made his debut this season in the EFL Trophy and is tipped for a bright future.

However, Cheltenham face a battle to hold onto their prized asset. The Robins will want to keep Evans-Harriott but might not be able to keep him away from the clutches of the Premier League.
Leicester have signed a number of young homegrown talents from the lower leagues in the past few years. The likes of George Thomas, George Hirst, Sam Hughes and James Justin have joined the Foxes.
Evans-Harriott could be the next one to join. The teenage midfielder is also wanted by a number of other clubs so Leicester face a transfer tussle here.
Despite his young age, Evans-Harriott has already been trusted to play senior football. This is a sign that he is highly-rated by Cheltenham, who will want him to continue his development at Whaddon Road.
Evans-Harriott recently scored in the U18s’ 8-4 win over Portsmouth in the FA Youth Cup. Cheltenham face Arsenal in the next round and an impressive performance would surely give him some options for a future move.
