The Ghana international has been working out with the team’s fitness coach and manager Claudio Ranieri has revealed the youngster will be assessed before thrown into the hat.

“I want to think a little more, I want to speak with my fitness coach and him and then I’ll decide,” said Ranieri of Amartey. “It’s just [his] fitness. He’s trained every day with us. Everybody is okay.

Amartey has been touted as the team’s ‘joker’ due to his versatility.
