Leicester, Ajax chasing Vejle prospect Wahid Faghir

Leicester City and Ajax are chasing 16 year-old Danish striker Wahid Faghir.

The Vejle prospect has drawn comparisons with Swedish great Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

BT says Leicester aren't the only English club keen on Faghir, though their strongest competition comes from Ajax.

The Denmark U17 international has scored seven goals in 12 games for the national youth team and is on the brink of a first team debut with Vejle.

Leicester are now weighing up whether to strike now and bring the teen to England in January.
