Foxes of Leicester describe and discuss the latest Leicester City transfer talk with two days remaining in the summer window. Here, is respective speculation on Mama Balde and James McAtee.
LCFC have supposedly made an offer for Balde, who has dual Guinean and Portuguese nationalities. He plays for Troyes in France’s Ligue 2; Olympique Lyonnais will rival the English team for the striker’s signature. Centreforwards are always welcome.
Meanwhile, Leicester also want Manchester City’s McAtee. The midfielder may be more easily obtainable due to Foxes boss Enzo Maresca’s links to the Premier League champions. We’re happy to take anybody from MCFC.
Leicester City head coach Enzo Maresca speaks on importance of mental strength before Tranmere Rovers League Cup clash
The ex-Citizens coach is enjoying a great, if tenuous, start to life as LCFC boss. Five wins from five matches is a sublime effort, no matter how constantly fine the margins are. The latest side put to the Leicester sword was Rotherham United on Saturday. Again, a very late goal got the Foxes the slim 2-1 victory. Maresca will hope for a few more goals and a clearer triumph as attention turns to Carabao Cup proceedings.
Following a 100 percent beginning in 2023/24, the east Midlands club’s Italian manager told his men to remain grounded and not to be complacent, via lcfc.com. The King Power outfit meet Tranmere on Tuesday at their Prenton Park stadium. Maresca, whose side are currently top of the Championship post-Rotherham, wants to keep expectations in order. He told the reporter that they will, of course, encounter defeat at some stages this campaign.
The man from Italy reiterated that the year will be hard. With so many games to go, the gaffer is concerned with a multitude of systems, strategies and stratagems to devise. He seeks for his squad to control fixtures.
