Leicester City in talks to secure permanent deal for Fatawu Issahaku

The 19-year-old, who played just 118 minutes for Sporting’s first team the previous season, signed an initial loan deal with the English outfit during the summer.

The adolescent was reportedly not part of Ruben Amorim’s plans for the upcoming season, according to numerous reports in Portugal.

The talented winger left Sporting with few options and signed a one-year loan agreement with the Foxes in the summer.

However, Issahaku’s career has been revitalized by the transfer, as he has thrived under Leicester boss Enzo Maresca’s tutelage.

The explosive Ghanaian wonderkid has shown glimmers of his enormous potential in 28 games, directly contributing to 12 goals with 3 goals and 9 assists.

The winger had already decided not to play for Ghana in the 2023 AFCON in order to concentrate on completing his almost-fulfilled goal of signing a contract to play permanently for Leicester City.

Issahaku describes Leicester City as “home already” for the time being because everyone is willing to lend a hand. They have aided in my adjustment to England.

“I believe Leicester can assist me in developing, growing, and maturing. In my career, I’ve had a lot of excellent coaches. The majority have always supported me in all I have done. There are too many for me to count.

“One of them is Enzo. He’s the kind of person who will converse with you both during and after the games. Even when you’re not playing football, he constantly wants you to act morally,” he continued.

The teenager will be essential to sparking Leicester’s Premier League comeback with 13 games remaining, giving him the opportunity to realize his enormous potential on the grandest platform.
