Inter Milan, Everton and Leicester City are after an international. Atalanta’s creative midfielder Ruslan Malinovskiy is the man in question.

Midfield might be the most satisfactory area at Leicester City at present. Wingers always seem needed, everyone knows a Jamie Vardy replacement is an eventual necessity up front. While the Foxes defence – with the injured Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyuncu and Timothy Castagne back fit – could ultimately become one of the most standout back-four or five around.

With excellent recruitment again in recent campaigns as well as off-season, Brendan Rodgers has developed a very efficient and dangerous squad of young players. In addition to some excelling experience – Austrian veteran Christian Fuchs for example – as the cherry on top of the cake.

One may opine that central midfielders, as previously stated, are probably the most efficiently stocked departed on Filbert Way. Youri Tielemans is on fire for club and country; compatriot Dennis Praet has been a wonderful addition at King Power Stadium; the incomparable Wilfred Ndidi actually has a rival for his spot in the incredible Papy Mendy.

And, James Maddison. Well, what can Foxes of Leicester say that hasn’t been said already?! Why isn’t Gareth Southgate a fan of the playmaker’s? That’s what I want to know.

Everton are another side that seem to be inundated with men in the middle. Although, that hasn’t stopped them being linked with, along with Inter Milan and Leicester, Atalanta’s Ukrainian international Ruslan Malinovskiy. There is more at Sport Witness.
