Shakespeare urges Everton move for Leicester striker Josh Eppiah

Leicester City striker Josh Eppiah is attracting rival Premier League interest.

ESPN says the Belgium Under-19 international has impressed in the youth ranks at the King Power and has featured for their Under-21s.

While he is yet to make a first-team appearance, striker Eppiah has attracted the interests of the likes of Bournemouth, West Ham and Stoke.

Craig Shakespeare, who left Leicester earlier this season, has reportedly been encouraging new Everton boss Sam Allardyce to have a look at the 19-year-old.

Shakespeare regards him as one of the best young players to come through Leicester's ranks in the time he was associated with the club.

Eppiah scored the winner for Leicester against Everton in their recent Premier League cup clash.
