A transfer rumour recently emerged stating that Leicester City might be targeting Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele – now it has been refuted.

Could it be? Could Leicester City start raiding iconic teams for their, well, not most coveted, but certainly exceptionally talented assets? Foxes fans can envisage that as a realistic wish now, most definitely.

Ever since Esteban Cambiasso chose to grace the East Midlands with his own elegant, committed footballing genius, this writer has believed those type of transfers are possible. After the ‘Great Escape’, and subsequently 2016’s exploits, nothing is impossible.

Meanwhile, Leicester as a club with business to conduct has been run meticulously well: signings, sales, along with branding and on-pitch triumphs have helped to make the Foxes a household name in the global football world. Why wouldn’t top quality athletes want to join the proudly sailing King Power ship?

Now, if you’re as exhaustedly experienced and as accomplished as I at sifting through Leicester City transfer gossip, conjecture and hearsay, as well as tangible rumour, you’ll be surprised that Foxes of Leicester are not now going to talk about the links to Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho. No. That is an ongoing sage; in which the club formerly mentioned will likely lose out to Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur or even Liverpool with regards to signing the Brazilian.

The latest Barca man to be linked with a move to England is Ousmane Dembele. However, Leicester Mercury published an article in which Spanish media ’emphatically rubbish’ the transfer claim.
