Leicester City are one of several clubs interested in signing Hull City captain Markus Henriksen at the end of the season, according to reports in the midfielder’s homeland of Norway.

Henriksen is one of the more experienced players in Nigel Adkins’ Hull squad and has been an ever-present this season, making 26 appearances.

The 26-year-old has mainly featured as the right-sided central midfielder in a 4-4-1-1 formation at the Championship club, and it sounds like he is catching the attention of some sides, including the Foxes.

Norwegian outlet VG report Leicester and Premier League rivals Newcastle United, are two of several clubs tracking his progress this term. Bordeaux are also reportedly potential suitors.

Claude Puel seems keen to add a midfielder to his ranks permanently having signed AS Monaco star Youri Tielemans on loan until the end of the campaign in January, with Adrien Silva going the other way.

Tielemans is joined by Daniel Amartey, Matty James, Nampalys Mendy, Wilfred Ndidi and Hamza Choudhury as options in the role Henriksen would play, so his arrival would boost an already-crowded position.

Would Henriksen be a good signing for Leicester?
