Foxes of Leicester comment as a Leicester City striker is targeted for a transfer. It would be surprising if any Foxes stars exit King Power Stadium in January as the Premier League a definitely attainable target. In addition, FoL provide an injury roundup before the Watford match.

With a return to the EPL not quite in sight but certainly appearing distantly in the horizon, there is not much point in transferring away in the new year. Unless a huge club with guaranteed European football came knocking, staying in Leicestershire seems an appealing proposal to me.

One asset of the east Midlands side has been connected with a possible move for a good while now. Some of us in the Blue Army expected Kelechi Iheanacho to leave in the summer. Or, at least, knew that the scenario was a distinct possibility. However, the Nigeria international stayed and is integral to manager Enzo Maresca in spite of sharing a dual sole attacker role with the illustrious Jamie Vardy. Iheanacho is currently the subject of supposed interest from Turkey. Will Fenerbahce get their man? Read more here.
