With Leicester City back in the Premier League, the Foxes will need to add mentality and experience to the side if they have designs of retaining their EPL space. Here are three players they should sign and why.

Leicester will have a new manager, several players leaving, and PSR restrictions causing worry amongst the fanbase of a slow transfer window and a tough campaign for survival. Therefore, the East Midlands team can either have a look for young prospects that would not mind possibly playing in the Championship, or experienced stalwarts who can bring their mentality and knowledge to help survival chances.

On top of this, Leicester City will need to sell a few players to make space for these incoming transfers. Talking about incomings, here are three players I think the Foxes should look to bring in and why.

Leicester City should sign these three

I have selected Premier League experienced players that can offer either a chance at survival or could grow into better players that could later be sold at a higher price or perhaps even offer a developmental opportunity. Also, all three are free agents, so we only have to be concerned with wages rather than worrying about fees.

1. Vladimir Coufal

With his contract at West Ham United expiring this month, the 31-year-old right back offers a defensive option on the right, as a centre-back, and displays plenty of passing ability to offer a variety of options when in play. Furthermore, his wages would not be extortionate, so could be brought in without breaking the bank.

2. Che Adams

The Leicester lad has been at Southampton for some time now. The 27-year-old is mainly a striker but can perform on the wings if needed, and beneficially has plenty of years left in his career so will be a great squad player. Again, his wages would not be extortionate and therefore would not create a tricky situation.

3. Ryan Sessegnon

Far younger, still with plenty of Premier League experience. The English 24-year-old is leaving Tottenham at the end of his contract this month. He can play left-back and left-wing, and offers a great cross into the box, as well as having a growing potential. He can also be sold for a gain in a few seasons when Leicester have the financial leeway to progress again.

The three players are free agents, have plenty of Premier League experience at varying levels of play, and offer the King Power side options either in the starting XI or from the bench. Further, Adam's is a Leicester lad that could easily join the side and do well at the club, where Sessegnon would be a medium to long term signing.
