Dennis Gyamfi could very well be the next Aaron Wan-Bissaka or Ricardo Pereira. It is vital that Leicester City keep the talented prospect.

Leicester City have a great defence at their disposal: the Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans partnership. Then there is the second best right-back in the Premier League to Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ricardo Pereira. Along with one of England’s best left backs, Ben Chilwell.

However, if you believe sports media, Chilwell is likely to leave the King Power club this summer. With Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur all said to be interested. Christian Fuchs may also depart from the Foxes, too. Though he has been offered the usual annual extension to his contract.

In that situation – both lefties hypothetically moving on – Leicester will need cover, or would need to promote James Justin to starting fullback. Luton Town’s former star is comfortable in defence or on the left wing, having played their for the Hatters. Which leaves a spot at right-back understudy.

A place which should possibly be filled by a starlet already with the East Midlanders. Who has, furthermore, made a rapid rise from Foxes Under-18 to Premier League 2 status.

Dennis Gyamfi must be kept at Leicester City

Another prospective transfer outcome is Ricardo moving forward into a winger role: the Portuguese is exceptionally adept at both ends and is experienced playing in an advanced position. Leaving availability for Justin on the right.

Leicester have a great prospect in the reserve Under-23 squad arguably ready for promotion to the seniors, as well. Albeit he must be retained and tried out in pre-season. That is if 2020/21 has a typical off-season.

Dennis Gyamfi is the young man in question. From the small amount of footage this writer has seen of the 18-year-old, he must be kept on Filbert Way. Gyamfi is of a very similar mould to Aaron Wan-Bissaka; whose combative, rubbery style has captured tenure in Manchester United’s starting side and the respect of their discerning fans.

While the Foxes academy graduate shows even more ferocity in the challenge than the Red Devil, already. Not to mention attacking down the line with skill, speed and crossing ability in a modern style.

It’s no wonder United are apparently tracking Gyamfi, who has already appeared for Holland’s Under-19 team, but holds Ghanaian citizenship. He must be kept from bolstering Leicester’s rivals for free in the future. Daily Star claim that, along with the Northern English outfit:

"Arsenal lead the way for the teenager, as well as Feyenoord and a handful of German clubs."

light. Hot. LCFC's huge pricetag for Ben Chilwell

The outlet suggests that Gyamfi sees no route into the Foxes first XI with Ricardo such a masterful performer and Justin ahead of him, too. Therefore the former wants a transfer. His contract expires at the end of June so FoL thinks Leicester City should offer him a deal which values a youthful player of gifted calibre. Additionally, outlaying to Gyamfi a plan to trial him with the seniors as soon as possible is also in the club’s best interests.
