After making three significant signings already this off-season, it’s reported that Leicester City are still in the market for two more incoming transfers.
At Foxes of Leicester Headquarters, we’re willing to go on record and say this is the best transfer window that Leicester City have ever conducted. There, we said it! If anyone wants to challenge that, contact us on Twitter or in the comment section at the bottom of the article.
The Foxes have made three excellent signings this summer, firstly James Justin from Luton Town: a top prospect at left or right-back, who may be a future international.
Secondly, Ayoze Perez: a surprise package from Newcastle United. A versatile forward who can play across the attacking line and as a number eight. He was welcomed wonderfully by the Blue Army, and wasn’t expected in the media at all. Strength in-depth, yes, but Perez also provides starting quality.
Thirdly, Youri Tielemans: what can we say; easily one of the best midfielders ever to grace the King Power Stadium, or Filbert Street, Leicester’s former ground. A record fee of £35 million for this incoming player is more than a bargain. Certainly fills a missing link status.
However, after a trio of first-class purchases, Brendan Rodgers, and head of recruitment Lee Congerton, may not be finished. In Wednesday’s Leicester Mercury is an article suggesting there is still possibly Foxes business to come before August 9:
“But by the time they finish their pre-season training in early August, there may well be two more new faces at Belvoir Drive.
“City are still looking to add to their squad and the number one priority at this point, now that prime target Youri Tielemans has been snapped up, is a winger.
“Beyond a winger, Rodgers also wants another number eight”
So a marquee winger may still be in the East Midlands club’s sights. Not to mention maybe a backup or development squad level No.8. Expect a top four Premier League placing if these extras transpire.

Additionally, Foxes fans can be extremely satisfied and optimistic as it looks as though all the star performers from Filbert Way are staying put. Chairman Top Srivaddhanaprabha insists his club is a not a ‘selling’ organization anymore, gladly. Progress is easier made this way.
