Finally there is some good transfer news for Foxes supporters to talk about via a terrific source, because Leicester City are supposedly closing in on their first January window signing. The Blue Army won’t be fully satisfied with this one, although the addition could potentially be a great start in the fight for Premier League survival.

The modern Leicester side is completely stagnant! Let’s be honest. I really like some of the current players, and certainly two or three of the LCFC Academy graduates appear to be heading towards English top-flight level: Kasey McAteer, Will Alves and Lewis Brunt are the trio which springs to mind.

Luke Thomas is ahead, yet he is still not ready for weekly EPL duties. But he may perhaps be gaining some help, soon. The veterans of the roster such as Jamie Vardy, Marc Albrighton and Jonny Evans continue to give their all for the Leicester cause, when fit. Nevertheless, a marked decrease in performance levels for the formerly mentioned pair is noticeable. Patson Daka may not have what is required to takeover from Vardy full-time in the near future, and Kelechi Iheanacho isn’t considered qualified as a solo spearhead of the side by manager Brendan Rodgers.

In midfield there is a creativity issue, especially when James Maddison is not playing. The playmaker is most often deployed out of position on the rightwing, regardless. The latter role is one City have needed to fill for years. Nevertheless, Leicester might now at least fill the vacancy at leftback which occurred following James Justin’s injury.

As shown above, Fabrizio Romano is possibly the verge of a ‘here we go’:

Leicester are closing in on permanent deal for Victor Kristiansen to join from FC Copenhagen, as @F_Abolhosseini reports #LCFC. Deal will cost €20m package with add ons included.

Later on Wednesday, The Athletic’s Rob Tanner shared an official statement from Copenhagen. Negotiations are confirmed – but the club reveal that no agreement has been reached.

Is Victor Kristiansen a promising prospective Leicester City signing?

Having assessed some of his statistics and a few of Kristiansen’s displays and highlights, I can state that I endorse the deal. Interestingly, as with Justin, the Denmark Under-21 star can play higher up the pitch as a wingback. At the youthful age of 20, I still envision the Dane as a battle-ready athlete, which definitely suits the English top-flight. In contrast, and adding to other admirable qualities, Kristiansen has quick-feet and loves to attack.
