According to a report, Leicester City still hold an interest in German international Robin Gosens. Apparently he is available for £25million.

Let’s be clear before we begin: Gosens is a top full-back/wingback talent, therefore Foxes of Leicester completely and utterly back the signing. Surely that player is destined for the Premier League – the greatest domestic division.

However, as he is such a proficient and quality performer, it feels unlikely that Leicester will secure his services for as little as £25m. Why there is a chance for a cut price transfer is the fact that Gosens’ current deal expires in 2022.

Many consider the Atalanta asset one of the most underpaid athletes in European football. A salary of £800,000-per-year is relatively little for a person of his stature who is a major nation regular.

With Timo Castagne – another former-Black and Blues old boy – Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand on the roster, the Foxes are not desperate to acquire someone like Gosens. Although he would be a left-sided upgrade, as FoL view it.

Leicester City target Robin Gosens could be up for grabs in an upcoming transfer window, despite Atalanta spurning offers for the player last summer. Reports from Italy suggest the Germany international could be let go for around £25m.

Leicester City fans may be in for a Premier League treat soon

Safe standing is coming to the English top-flight soon, as per Daily Mail, who suggest that for the first time since the 1990s fans could be given the right to support their teams however they see fit. Championship clubs will also be invited to trial the rule change.

Being allowed to constantly stand was banned following a study surrounding the Hillsborough FA Cup disaster in 1989. The outlet further points out that Manchester City, Man United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur already have facilities to incorporate this in place.
