Mads Hermansen: 8.5/10

This is another signing I loved from the Leicester City board. Goalkeeper Mads Hermansen was signed from Danish side Bröndby IF for a transfer fee of €7m. The 23-year-old is the definition of the modern generational goalkeeper. Firstly, he can make outrageous saves; something I can’t wait to see finally happen at Leicester. He’s got a great bounce and can cover a lot of the goal. Secondly, his distribution is fantastic, something that is hard to find in today’s football. He is the exact keeper you’d want in Maresca’s system. He is already great at such a young age. He will develop into a wonderful keeper.

Yunus Akgün: 7/10

I will be totally honest, I’m not too familiar with Yunus Akgün’s game outside his minutes played against Hull City. However, I’ve seen the hype he has on Twitter and I can understand why. He is quick, agile, and good on the ball. He is someone I’m excited to watch grow into the team in the future. Only being 23, he has a lot of room to grow. He is a loan with an obligation to buy. If he continues to perform well, I’d love to see him stay with the team. I love the youngster’s Leicester brought into the squad this summer.

Cesare Casadei: 9/10

These next two players would be 10/10 signings if they were to return to the squad next season. Unfortunately, that will not be happening. Cesare Casadei is a brilliant youngster who is on loan from Chelsea. The Italian tore it up in the U-21 Euros and he’s only built onto his momentum as he joined the squad. He is a central midfielder who can score and pass the ball. The Foxes are simply electric and bound to score whenever he is on the pitch. Chelsea has a gem on their hands as the 20-year-old will only continue to grow as he stays with Leicester on loan.
