Left-back position on Rodgers' mind
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is eyeing a summer move for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney, reports claim.
Northern Irishman Rodgers left the Bhoys after a two-and-a-half-year spell on Tuesday to take over at Leicester, who confirmed the sacking of Claude Puel on Sunday following the 4-1 defeat to Crystal Palace the previous day.
The 46-year-old Rodgers will be in charge for Sunday's trip to Vicarage Road to take on Watford, who were thumped 5-0 at Liverpool on Wednesday, as he aims to finish the season strongly.
Rodgers is already believed to be eyeing up potential summer targets and it is thought he will look to bring Scotland international Tierney from Parkhead to the King Power Stadium.
The 21-year-old, who has been a regular first-team fixture for Celtic since the 2015/16 campaign, is one of the best players in the Scottish Premiership and has previously been linked with a move to Manchester United.
Tierney's potential arrival could allow the Foxes' current left-back Ben Chilwell to leave the club following reports of interest from defending Premier League champions Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola is eager to strengthen that area of his squad and the England international is said to be his number one target for the summer.
