And the Foxes manager is very happy to see his former player doing so well on Merseyside, even admitting he didn't want the forward to leave the King Power Stadium.
"Yeah I'm delighted for Demarai," Rodgers remarked. "I think he felt he needed to [leave], I'd have loved for him to have stayed. But I just think he'd been at the club for about seven years, and he wanted to go and be a regular player somewhere.
"He had the opportunity to go to Germany and that didn't work out, and sometimes you come back and think this might be the last chance.
"He's grabbing it, from what I've seen of him.
"I'm delighted for him personally, he was a good guy. When I was here he made really valuable contributions.
"But I think he felt he needed to go away and start every game, and he felt the best opportunity to do that was probably to move on from Leicester.
"He's scored some important goals for them and he's a very good player."
