Leicester City definitely need a right-sided winger on Filbert Way. Bournemouth’s Welsh international David Brooks is a suitable candidate.
Leicester City hit the jackpot in signing Algerian Riyad Mahrez for such a nominal fee. Well, on the pitch he was a revelation, off it was another matter – he wasn’t a content team member. One who had delusions of grandeur encapsulated in his self-important career trajectory.
Nevertheless, Mahrez is the Foxes’ highest performing wingman of the modern era; no player signed to replace has replicated anything like the productivity or influence. In fact, you could literally add the new wingers’ contributions together and it wouldn’t touch the Manchester City man.
Ayoze Perez has been the most prevalent fixture on the right-side of attack for the East Midlanders recently. Yet the Spaniard is playing out-of-position, technically, as he prefers a central role. And, since manager Brendan Rodgers altered his place in the team to a kind of No.10, the former Newcastle United man has been more consistent and effective.
Leicester City should rival Manchester United for target
There are of course many options Rodgers and his recruitment can target; Foxes of Leicester means to suggest some of those. Bournemouth’s David Brooks is ideal for Leicester: he can play attacking midfield in the style of a James Maddison or Perez; furthermore, the Welshman would elevate the left-wing spot.
Manchester United are apparently interested in Brooks, if their pursuit of Jadon Sancho is unsuccessful. Arsenal as well as Tottenham Hotspur are tracking the 23-year-old so City would have a tough task signing Brooks.
talking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, Leicester City take them on this Sunday in a pivotal match for both clubs’ seasons. The winner of the King Power Stadium clash will almost certainly be handed Champions League football for 2020/21. While this weekend’s unsuccessful outfit will qualify for Europa League.
