Brendan Rodgers has barely had time to put a kettle on in his new office at Leicester, but he's already planning an audacious summer swoop for Bournemouth goal machine Callum Wilson, according to the Sun.

The report states that Wilson could be on his way to Leicester for as much as £40 million should Rodgers get his way. But that could be just the tip of the transfer kitty iceberg, with the paper claiming that Rodgers could be on the receiving end of a £200 million welcome package as he bids to take Leicester back to the pinnacle of English football.

That's not likely to happen again (is it?), but the former Celtic boss is clearly intent on strengthening his squad when the summer transfer window opens at the end of the season.

Chelsea and West Ham have also been linked with Wilson, who has been hampered by injury since the new year, but a move back to the Midlands could be tempting for a player who will have one eye on securing a place in the England squad after making his debut against the U.S. in November. As Rodgers looks to revamp the Leicester squad, Wilson could find himself a man in demand.
