Unfortunately for Leicester City, it appears that a Big Six club want ​Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers. Will Tottenham Hotspur get their target?

Reports over the weekend claim that the Leicester boss is a being lined up for poaching. Foxes of Leicester aim to explain why Rodgers will stay on Filbert Way.

The Sun, in an ‘exclusive’, suggest the former is Daniel Levy’s first-choice as successor to Jose Mourinho. Levy is said to be attempting to convince executives of the candidate’s suitability for the role.

This is why the Leicester City boss will remain on Filbert Way

Their are multiple reasons why Spurs won’t be able to secure their ‘target’ – FoL will reveal them all! First of all, the Northern Irishman has recently stated that he isn’t interested in leaving Leicester, for any side; that is despite the always polite Rodgers confirming he admired the North London team.

Secondly, the Foxes are enjoying a thrilling season which should set them up for top tier European football in the next campaign, the Champions League. In addition to being one of the main English Premier League clubs on the rise – if not literally the most likely outfit to disturb the established leading clubs. Just look at the brand new state-of-the-art training complex, for example. Not to mention being third in the EPL.

We have already seen a massive drop in form, pull and quality from sides such as Spurs and Arsenal, limiting appeal. Finally, Leicester reportedly paid £9 million to secure Rodgers’ services from his former team, Celtic. I cannot see the Lilywhites doing the same.

With Leicester’s track excellent record of retaining and protecting their best assets since they lost N’golo Kante on the cheap due to a release clause in the Frenchman’s contract, Tottenham would probably have to increase on the previously quoted figure. FoL expects Rodgers to remain at the Foxes helm for at least the 2021/22 campaign.
