Leicester boss Sven Goran Eriksson believes Jeffrey Schlupp is destined for the top and is keen to see him pen fresh terms.

The highly-rated teenager only signed a new deal with the Foxes last April.

He has, however, seen his profile rise considerably since then, with Premier League interest mounting by the week.

Reports suggest a number of top flight scouts have been sent to watch him in action, with Liverpool and Stoke believed to be leading the hunt.

Leicester, though, have no intention of parting with a player that has already scored four goals this season.

Eriksson is aware that Schlupp is a player of massive potential and is eager to see him commit his long-term future to the Foxes.

"Jeffrey has a great future ahead of him," Eriksson said of the Germany U19 international.

"He's a huge talent and is getting better and better."
