Key FCK midfielder linked to move to Leicester City

Ghanaian international Daniel Amartey has been valued at 60 million kroner

FC Copenhagen defensive midfielder Daniel Amartey could be on his way to Leicester City, the surprise package in the English Premier League title race this season, reports BBC Radio Leicester.

Amartey, 21, who has already won six caps for the Ghanaian national side, has played a pivotal role in FCK’s title push this season, and he will be sorely missed if he leaves.

At the age of just 18 he was voted one of the top ten players in the Swedish League by Expressen newspaper, and in 2013 he was linked to a move to Liverpool, before moving to FCK in July 2014 for €2.5 million (around 18.5 million kroner).

Tempting offer
However, with a reported 60 million kroner on the table and the possibility of winning a coveted EPL winner’s medal, plus the promise of Champions League football next season, Amartey will no doubt be interested in the offer.

Following a 1-0 away win at Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening, Leicester are second in the EPL table, level on points with leaders Arsenal.

    Many of us Danes, despite being well-educated and well-travelled, often lack experience in navigating cultural differences at work.

As their manager, you can help your Danish colleagues by acknowledging cultural differences in the workplace.
