Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers drops a huge hint over the Foxes’ upcoming summer transfer recruitment targets.

All attention switches to a maiden European competition semifinal for the King Power side. Yes, that’s right, Leicester have never progressed this far in their entire history. As much as Brendan Rodgers’ previous two Premier League campaign finishes and this season have been fairly criticised, he deserves praise, too.

The boss undoubtedly aided the transition – via the Srivaddhanaprabha family enabling the club generally – to a sustainable top half EPL team. Ans one which can threaten higher up than that. In addition to attaining an initial FA Cup triumph.

All in all, things are going well. But let’s see how the East Midlands outfit get on against famous Italian side Roma before we get too carried away. This will be a completely different proposition to some of the weak Europa League and Europa Conference League opposition faced previously.

Meanwhile, LCFC are in the ‘news’ regarding potential summer signings. Oh, along with the obligatory possibly outgoing ‘connections’ made by various tiers of reliability with the journalism world.

Basically, if what I just said doesn’t make any sense, first of all excuse my dry humour. What it means is much of the speculation we shall read over the off-season is unreliable and possibly fabricated, a lie. Or, in other cases, a more cleverly contrived scenario of plausible relationship. Of course, some of the hearsay is particularly accurate; typically emerging from Telegraph, The Times, The Guardian and The Independent etcetera.

However, this time around Foxes of Leicester wanted to bring something concrete to your attention. Unfortunately it is not regarding a specific player, yet Rodgers definitely pinpoints an area that Leicester will undoubtedly attempt to reinforce after this term’s climax:

“We’re really limited in that area [central midfield/box-to-box]. That’s the reality of it in terms of the squad.”

– Brendan Rodgers

Furthermore, the publication itself states this:

It is understood that a box-to-box midfielder is one of the club’s priorities for the summer transfer window. Rodgers wants five or six new faces as part of his healthy shake-up, and within that, is it understood City want three players who can come into the starting line-up at centre-back, in central midfield, and on the right wing.
