Leicester eyeing Sagan Tosu striker Kyosuke Tagawa

Leicester City are eyeing Japan youth international Kyosuke Tagawa.

Sports Nippon says the teenage forward has impressed City with his displays for J League side Sagan Tosu and for Japan's youth teams.

Playing in a support striker role, similarly to Shinji Okazaki at City, 19-year-old Tagawa has already played more than 50 senior games for Sagan Tosu, scoring eight goals.

He's been a regular with the Samurai Blue's age-group sides, featuring in last year's Under-20 World Cup and this summer's Toulon Tournament, notably scoring the winner for Japan's under-21s against Portugal.
