Judging by Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers’ comments, the Foxes making another transfer seems unlikely in Foxes of Leicester’s view.

Leicester do desperately need a right-winger – I honestly don’t know how I can keep saying it in different, fresh sentences. And it is now becoming increasingly annoying for LCFC fans who are aware that an amazing amount of profit was made on comparatively inexpensive signings who have departed. See Riyad Mahrez for example.

Obviously some significant investment has been made from James Maddison to Youri Tielemans, Caglar Soyuncu and Patson Daka. Not to mention some expensive duds over the years like Islam Slimani.

Yet an appropriate and promising wingman should have been secured during the off-season before Daka arguably, and most certainly before another midfielder was acquired. Listen, Daka and Soumare are for the future and are potentially brilliant signings in Foxes of Leicester’s view, but I’m sure you understand my point.

Now, unfortunately for the loyal Blue Army, it appears after reading into comments from Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers that all incomings may have already occurred in this transfer window:

“No [no deals imminent], not at this moment. We would still like to do one or two things. We don’t have an endless pot of money. We may have to move one or two [sell players to buy] out first.

“There are worse things to be unhappy about. [If Leicester don’t sign another player] ”

Furthermore, the boss said this:

“We’ve also other players who have developed. By the end of the window, we will have what we have, I’m not going to moan about what we don’t have.”
