Leicester City have produced a great effort overall so far this campaign, so it is unsurprising that clubs such as Manchester United are after players like Caglar Soyuncu.

If you’ve seen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United side play in 2019/20 or this term, you’ll be aware that they have more attacking prowess and efficiency than in defence. Former Leicester City defender Harry Maguire reinforced their back line somewhat, though his immobility is now exposed more than when he was a Fox.

Eric Bailly nor Victor Lindelof appear capable of assisting Maguire in United’s ascension to former glory. Which leads any general, rational football fan, Man United supporter or the Red Devils staff to naturally expect them to sign another quality centre-back in the January transfer window or during summer 2021.

Hopefully that won’t be Leicester’s Caglar Soyuncu, as Express suggest he’s on Solskjaer’s wishlist. The Turkey international is highly-rated by everyone, I assume; he is certainly one of Brendan Rodgers’ top assets.

Roundup of recent Leicester City events

We can thank the Premier League – on this occasion – because there is a six-day gap before Leicester meet Newcastle United in northeast England. Unfortunately, it was only a two-day break between the Man United match and Leicester’s subsequent fixture against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. This quick turnaround saw Rodgers field a very different side, with seven changes from the previous game.

Hot. Brendan Rodgers talks January transfer business. light

Despite making even more switches working for Rodgers in a directly similar instance last season versus West Ham United, therefore most Blue Army representatives I saw considered the same method from the gaffer appropriate. Yet a vocal minority advocated Jamie Vardy’s involvement from the start. Amplified by Kelechi Iheanacho’s missed penalty and dropping two points. However, the squad must be protected from injury in these strange times with condensed breaks.
