Schlupp is Kraut of this world

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

SVEN GO­RAN ERIKS­SON is ready to of­fer teenage won­derkid Jef­frey Schlupp a new deal in a bid to scare off Liver­pool and Stoke.

Le­ices­ter boss Eriks­son wants his board to open talks with Schlupp over a bumper con­tract.

Ger­many Un­der-19 striker Schlupp has im­pressed this sea­son and Premier League scouts have reg­u­larly watched the Foxes star.

Eriks­son is keen to keep the 18-year-old, who only signed a con­tract last April and has scored four goals this sea­son.

He said: “There is no doubt that Jef­frey has a great fu­ture ahead of him. He is a fan­tas­tic tal­ent and he is just get­ting bet­ter and bet­ter.

“He is strong, has good tech­nique, a good left foot and is not afraid to fight in the air.”
