De Ketelaere Newcastle Leicester transfer battle

Newcastle and Leicester are said to be keen on bringing him to the Premier League, but Serie A giants AC Milan and Napoli are also emerging as suitors, according to reports in Italy.

De Ketelaere has a big future ahead of him, having previously been compared to Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne, so it would be exciting to see him take the next step of his development in England.
