West Ham, Leicester convinced Man City ready to sell Roberts

West Ham and Leicester City are chasing Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts for the summer market.

The Sun says they will go head-to-head for City forward Roberts, currently on-loan at Celtic, this summer in a £15million deal.

Claude Puel wanted the 21-year-old, on loan at Celtic, as a makeweight in the deal for Riyad Mahrez that City walked away from over the price.

The Foxes boss still wants the ex-Fulham star in the summer as he looks certain to lose Mahrez eventually.

But West Ham will compete for Roberts too and are ready to firm up their long-term interest after missing out on him when he went to City.

Roberts was also on David Moyes' radar this January but Leicester moved first to try to get him as part of the Mahrez package.
