Dennis Praet
A move away for the Belgium international has been on the cards for some time now as he has been nothing more than a bit-part player at the King Power. Torino, for whom he played on loan in 2021-22, have been linked with him again reportedly offering around £3m for his services. Leicester reportedly want around double that.

It is, perhaps, surprising that Maresca has utilised Praet as extensively as he has so far, the Belgium wide man putting in a quality cross to create the first goal against Coventry. However, it is unlikely, with future signings on the cards, that he will play much of a role this season and a move away is very likely.

Possible Foxes exits

Kelechi Iheanacho

After Barnes and Maddison, Iheanacho is probably the most marketable asset in the Leicester squad relegated from the Premier League. Interest from Forest and Everton has reportedly occurred, although the latter now seem more interested in Patson Daka.

The King Power outfit could get a sizeable fee for Iheanacho even though he is in the last year of his contract and, given he is a high wage earner too, getting him off the books is probably something that Leicester will not be averse to doing, particularly as Vardy got the nod over the Nigerian for the opening match. A lot will depend on the club finding an adequate replacement.

Boubakary Soumare
The 2021 signing from Lille doesn’t appear to be part of Maresca’s plans at all. It is something of a surprise that he hasn’t figured in one of the number eight roles but the Leicester boss prefers Wilfred Ndidi in that position.

If Ndidi stays then there is a very good chance that Soumare will move on, possibly back to France.
