Leicester City have funds to sign players in three positions in the January transfer window. Foxes of Leicester reveal the areas and offer insight.

Evidently the Leicester team is not up to scratch. If you want evidence of that, watch the highlights of the Newcastle United defeat at home. Although, I don’t recommend that to the Blue Army! A further reason why the squad needs improvement is, thankfully, the east Midlands club’s ambition of re-entry into the Champions League or Europa League.

Opportunities to reinforce the side in new years gone by have, unfortunately, not been taken. LCFC rarely spend much money in January. there have been successful loan deals like Youri Tielemans’ arrival from AS Monaco, along with the poor recruitment of Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Ryan Bennett.

However, on this occasion the Foxes are expected to make some moves. Relegation must be avoided at all cost, and it appears that chairman Khun Top Srivaddhanaprabha has taken note of that fact. Money for signings is available, suggested recent reports. Now manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that the outfit will look to complete acquisitions.

There are many positions that could do with a boost, whether through fresh starters or understudies to bolster certain regions on the field of play. Fans who attend the King Power Stadium as well as away matches will tell you that a rightwinger has been required since the end of the Riyad Mahrez era. Rodgers wants a centreback; injuries to James Justin and persistent problems for Ricardo Pereira mean a new fullback is necessary, too.

During his pre-match press conference for the Liverpool fixture, Rodgers did name multiple positions that Leicester would like to improve. He says his teams usually have two competent wingers. He needs an extra left-back to come in. Height is needed through a centre-half; I assume this is a partial reference to defending corners.

In addition, the Northern Irishman seems to hint at a striker possibly joining as well. Rodgers wishes to move fast during the window. This article states that up to three deals are proposed on Filbert Way with funding ready.
