Harvey Barnes News
The 23-year-old England international had been one of Leicester's best players in 2020-21, scoring 13 goals in all competitions before undergoing knee surgery that ruled him out of the European Championship.
Barnes had a setback in his recovery from an injury he sustained against Arsenal on 28 February and requires a “minor operation just to clear up some of the damage in his knee,” Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said Wednesday.
Leicester are third, five points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea, with the top four guaranteed a place in Europe's elite club competition.
The 23-year-old winger had been tipped for a call-up to the England squad for three World Cup qualifiers next month after scoring 13 goals this season to help the Foxes into third in the Premier League.
