Jens Petter Hauge is a name to consider for Leicester. TCF believe that this player would be the perfect man as a replacement for Ademola Lookman should be found. His top level is at a grand stand and used correctly he would add the perfect blend to an attacking unit at Leicester.
TCF made a report on him earlier as he then was linked to Cercle Brugge in Belgium but never joined and instead made a move to AC Milan. He has since joined Eintracht Frankfurt and last season being part of their team ending up as sensational Europa League winners.
Leicester have in previous years made great moves in the transfer market. Going after players you never heard off as Manchester United reserves, Le Havre and Fleetwood Town were approached. The latest masterclass move to be done in that category is the addition of James Justin from Luton.
Jens Petter Hauge is a bit of a mix between Harvey Barnes and Marc Albrighton as he is great passer, got fantastic pace, can do a proper cross, a good dribler, and of course scoring goals. His talent is far from fullfilled as he has experienced a bit of a fringe life for Norway, AC Milan and Eintracht Frankfurt.
Eintracht Frankfurt did make the move for Jens Petter Hauge permanent as they look at him as a major asset going forward, but with their recruitment done this summer made certain Bundesliga experts uncertain about his part at present.
Leicester are looking for players with a certain edge and using their analytic tools probably see this man as an addition of excitement. Jens Petter Hauge is still a young man at the age of 22 and has build vital experience playing in Serie A with AC Milan (18/2) and Bundesliga witn Eintracht Frankfurt (26/2), as well as being competing in Europe every season since he was 19. He has so far been capped 10 times for Norway at full international level.
Hauge is also used to the 4-3-3 system as he has played and been trained for years at Bodo Glimt who do drill this to perfection. He can play on both flanks if needed. His best position though is on the left flank going inside and using his right foot with a great shot or a grand pass. He can also attack and drible down the right flank, curling the ball in and showing his class. This will give Brendan Rodgers double options for the use of this player and have no worries to play him on both flanks.
Eintracht Frankfurt signed him up in May for fee in the region of £10millon, but they might be eager to see him loaned out and sold on as a proper season somewhere else would give him much higher value.
His younger brother Runar Hauge also recently made a move to Britain as he joined Hibernian from Bodo Glimt back in March.
