We all know Leicester City are struggling for goals presently and that Jamie Vardy can’t do it on his own. Will Brendan Rodgers turn to transfers?
Since returning from the Premier League suspension and a general lockdown, Leicester City have managed one goal in three matches. That’s a solitary finish in 270 minutes – not to mention that it came from the unlikely source of defender Ben Chilwell.
An astounding statistic for a side which thrives on forward-thinking play; along with containing the enigmatic, unique Jamie Vardy. However, this is the case. And now Foxes supporters are rapidly becoming upset – some already illogically disillusioned – with the rather boring football currently being exhibited.
Additionally, negative focus was thrust onto Chilwell – through his own naivety – for laughing with goalscorer Ross Barkley as Leicester were eliminated from the FA Cup by Chelsea.
Due to the players reemerging from an unprecedented hiatus recently, the more measured fans are pragmatical about proceedings. For now.

During Brendan Rodgers‘ pre-Everton press conference, he was asked if he and the recruitment department will be “bringing in any attacking players” this transfer window. Rodgers confirmed that they have been assessing possible attackers to sign. While also indicating that the search will continue through the summer.
Elsewhere in topical Leicester City updates, the city has of course entered back into a temporarily imposed lockdown. Although the club released a statement, also made on Tuesday, stating their three remaining home fixtures will go ahead as planned.
