Leicester City have Celtic manager Brendan Rogers in their sights as a shock replacement for current boss Claude Puel, according to a report.

The Sun claims that the 45-year-old is on the radar of the Foxes and that they are thinking of a change of management due to player unrest with Puel currently at the helm.

It is understood that Rodgers would be considered if Puel departs, as he has previous Premier League experience with Liverpool and could help launch a push towards the European spots.

Football Insider verdict:

Rodgers already has a place in Celtic history following his double treble success at Parkhead and nobody would want to see him walk out this summer. The brilliant tactician has transformed the Bhoys into a well drilled unit that are formidable in domestic football and he still has unfinished business to deal with in terms of European football. There is also the added tension of Steven Gerrard’s arrival at Rangers over the summer and it would be brilliant to see Rodgers square up against his former pupil. However, it seems inevitable that at some time in the future a manager of Rodgers’ quality will return to England and Leicester certainly seems an attractive option. The Foxes obviously have their Premier League triumph of a couple of years ago still fresh in the memory and they want to become European regulars. They have started the summer with brilliant transfers for Jonny Evans and Ricardo Pereira, which should them really kick on next season.
