Leicester aim to sign defender despite Chelsea interest

Regardless of interest from West Ham United and Chelsea, Leicester City aim to steal wingback Robin Gosens away from Atalanta.

Brendan Rodgers has insisted his team will enter the transfer market this summer. In fact, the Leicester City boss says that his side will improve from their dealings in this surely difficult window, thanks to COVID-19.

With Europa League confirmed at least, and maybe even Champions League football next campaign, Leicester absolutely need to strengthen. Since six senior squad members – including four star players – were unavailable following the Premier League restart, it is plainly evident that the club need more quality in their roster depth.

If Ben Chilwell is eventually sold to Chelsea, Manchester United or Man City, then the East Midlanders will assure you that they require another left-back. To be perfectly frank, they probably don’t: yes, Luke Thomas had some very poor touches versus Tottenham Hotspur but he’s young and already a great prospect.

Leicester City interested in defender

Versatile, Dutch-German Atalanta player Robin Gosens is apparently on the Foxes‘ radar, according to speculation. Hearsay also places the Blues in contention for his signature. Formerly just a utility man, the 26-year-old who identifies with Germany, can play as a fullback, a midfielder or as a wingback.

Yet it is as a wingback for La Dea this season where he’s really made his name: scoring nine goals in Serie A. Defensively Gosens is very strong, too.
