With the Premier League season now underway, Leicester City is still yet to make a signing, however, the Foxes have made one solid transfer move this summer which could kick-start the window.
It has been reported by the Daily Mail that Leicester City has put Jannik Vestergaard up for sale for £12 million. It has been a tumultuous tenure at the King Power Stadium for Vestergaard, who has struggled to fit into Brendan Rodgers’ side over the last 12 months.
The Danish centre-back originally joined the East Midlands side in a move which was meant to increase squad depth as well as improve Leicester City’s poor record from set-pieces. However, after a promising first couple of appearances, his form went downhill and was rarely selected in the starting lineup.
It was reported that Fulham were originally interested in the Danish defender but instead opted to sign Issa Diop, however, there have been no other reports of interested clubs.
A transfer could be beneficial for both parties as Vestergaard will be eager to get minutes under his belt with the FIFA World Cup just three months away, while the Foxes are in desperate need of funds to make their first venture into the transfer market.
With just three weeks left in the transfer window, LCFC remains the only club in Europe’s top five leagues yet to make a single signing, so the King Power club will be desperate for a deal to be made for Vestergaard as soon as possible.
In the meantime, Rodgers will be tasked with preparing for an away clash with Arsenal on Saturday. The Blue Army will hope Leicester City can improve on its display against Brentford, where the East Midlands side let a 2-0 lead slip in the second half.
LCFC fans can expect to see their star midfielder, Youri Tielemans in the side once again. After being linked with numerous other clubs over the last six months, his main suitors, Arsenal, have since moved their interests elsewhere, which would likely mean the Belgian will remain with the club until January at the very least.
