Leicester have over a number of previous transfer windows been seen as heavy chasers of Todd Cantwell, but nothing happened. The asking price was at a much higher level than the £10million offered for him this week. His form at Norwich has been a bit up and down, and he is at present not a certain starter, was loaned out to Bournemouth last season, and his future at Carrow Road looks a bit in the air.
Cantwell was sensational in the 2019/20 season for Norwich, and also contributed well when they managed to get straight back up in 2020/21, but again struggling last season and then loaned out and not much in favor when Dean Smith was in charge.
Cantwell returned to Norwich after his loan spell and has this season been involved in 18 of the 26 league games so far, but not really shined and started 9 of those games, as the club now are 11th in the Championship.
The 24 year old former England U.21 international had, according to Rangers sources, agreed personal terms and was eager to move north, but so a bid of £10million is said to have been turned down.
Brendan Rodgers knows the qualities of Todd Cantwell and we have seen Leicester linked in the past. He is a type of player that would surely trigger the buttons seen as important to become a success.
To join Leicester would of course be a step up for the Norwich flank man, and his vision of the game and skills would surely be of use for Brendan Rodgers, with a possible price of £12million being what it takes to bring the player to Leicester, and again a much better alternative than many of the other names seen linked.
