Both wings

First of all in this category, Leicester City academy graduate Harvey Barnes will polish to be a truly beneficial part of the team with correct guidance. At the moment he is still too raw to be determined a starter and must transition to a more stable performer.

Barnes has managed to make himself a accustomed with the England Under-21s; along with undertaking a goalscoring bonanza in The Championship. Whereas making the grade at Premier League standard is a whole different ball game, so to speak.

This writer assesses that time will tell with this youthfully winger, eventually his confidence will hopefully come. At the moment it feels as though the left as well as the right-wing need more established stars to fill the gap. Well, at least one significant incoming transfer could upgrade the outfit massively.

Ayoze Perez has been more unvarying in his form; not to mention netting quite a few important finishes for the Foxes. His facilitating could do with ameliorating slightly, too. However Perez is fielded out-of-position in a sense: he prefers the direct, central support-attacker’s role, as opposed to being employed as a wingman.

Yet the Spaniard manages to fulfill the requirements, just about. While we can see that most of his goals come when he drifts inward during games. He is likely to remain a vital element of the Northern Irishman’s side in some capacity.
