In the latest round of Leicester City transfer rumours, the Foxes are relinked with French winger Florian Thauvin. Is the speculation realistic?

Yes, Leicester City supporters are moving from concern to worry, now. And in some cases, panic has set in. Well, that is if you believe a portion of the rubbish spouted on Twitter.

Nevertheless, there have been no signings for the Foxes whatsoever this off-season; which is one of the most – if not the most – crucial in the team’s history.

Evolution of the side or club as a whole rests on investment, as sad as it is to make a statement such as that. Regardless of the inexpensive gems discovered in the past – Riyad Mahrez, N’golo Kante, Jamie Vardy – players that good and that cheap come along every decade or so. If that.

Leicester were fortunate, blessed or even staggeringly lucky to obtain some of the athletes they did. Especially for the prices paid. Therefore Foxes of Leicester assesses that not buying some efficient, sufficient personnel would risk backtracking for this superb outfit with lofty aspirations.

Leicester City must sign the correct players

Apparently Leicester are after Marseille winger Florian Thauvin, along with Aston Villa and Italian side Atalanta. The French team are said to want £13.5 million for their longtime player. The English pair have reportedly made approaches for Thauvin, who has been prolific in Ligue 1.

At the moment this hearsay appears to be just that, there is only one report and the Foxes have been ‘interested’ before according to media.

FoL feels that the wingman could transition his skills to the Premier League, a division he’s familiar with. Regardless of his injury plagued 2019/20 campaign. Even though he didn’t score or assist at all when at Newcastle United. But we can’t see it happening, and I can’t explain why – it’s just this window.

Having a World Cup winner on Filbert Way would be wonderful, yet that fact is slightly misleading statistic: the 27-year-old only played once. Not to take anything away from his marvelous achievement.
