A Liverpool legend is reportedly under consideration to become the new Leicester City boss.
Would Steven Gerrard be a good choice to take the Foxes back to the Premier League promised land? Leicester and Leeds United owners both think Gerrard is the man to lead them out of the Championship.
Gerrard apparently ‘has a good chance’ of joining LCFC. While Sam Allardyce recently left Leeds. What do you think about the Reds Icon potentially at City?
Steven Gerrard’s old club want to sign two Leicester City stars
Gerrard left the Villans last year – which seems longer ago for some reason – and has been out of work since. Previously he managed the Reds’ Under-18 and U19 teams; prior to joining Villa, he was at Scottish Premiership side Glasgow Rangers.
The Birmingham club are incidentally, supposedly interested in taking a couple of standout Foxes: Youri Tielemans and Harvey Barnes. Maybe Tielemans was an outstanding Fox once upon a time, I believe he’s been below par for around two years comparatively to his originally high performance level. You know my thoughts about Barnes: devastatingly dangerous on his day yet wasteful and often weak on the ball.
Nevertheless, Unai Emery is said to be after Leicester’s assets to boost his midfield and wing departments. Obviously Tielemans is available for free, an aspect which still sticks in the craw of some of the Blue Army. I am particularly dissatisfied at losing him for nothing after two relatively disappointing seasons for the Belgian. Barnes should command £30million plus, but is worth slightly more to a mid-table/European competition-seeking outfit.
There are other clubs monitoring the Leicestershire duo, although AVFC are attempting to make waves with the Spaniard backed by ownership. However, the article is uncertain regarding whether Barnes will actually leave LCFC; I can pretty much assure you that the wideman will definitely depart. Before the weekend, Leicester’s Midlands rivals were favourites to score the two Foxes according to one well-known bookmaker.
