Voetbal Nieuws claim Tottenham, Leicester and Manchester City are all vying to sign Club Brugge prodigy Charles De Ketelaere. The Belgian shines for his childhood club – and is valued at £ 33.5million.
De Ketelaere, 20, has scored 12 goals in 30 appearances this season. But the Belgian international is more of an attacking midfielder, despite the constitution of a No. 9. His heist game is also one of his main attributes.
So much so that Roberto Martinez called him to the Belgian squad earlier this season. He now has four caps for Belgium, even scoring in the third-place UEFA Nations League play-off against Italy, losing 2-1.
His performances in the Champions League have caught the attention of Pep Guardiola – but Manchester City are not alone. Indeed, the report claims Leicester and Tottenham want to sign the Belgian striker as well.
City, Leicester or Tottenham – which is better for De Ketelaere?
Without a doubt, a move to Leicester is his best move. Manchester City have many options in the positions De Ketelaere will want to play. Its rise and development would only stammer the Etihad.
He must play regularly, at the highest level. Tottenham would give him plenty of playing time, but Antonio Conte’s system doesn’t really include a No.10. Gio Lo Celso, Dele Alli and Tanguy Ndombele are struggling to play.
So a move to Leicester would make more sense. Of course, he would also be surrounded by Belgian compatriots like Youri Tielemans and Timothy Castagne. It makes sense and looks like some sort of Leicester signing.
