Hello, and welcome to FoL. Let's get to it, Foxes fans! First of all, Vardy. He hasn't been spotted back in training as of yet, unlike McAteer. Although, Enzo Maresca's timeline suggested that the pair should have returned by now.
Alves is close, says the boss. Meanwhile Kelechi Iheanacho has survived an injury scare to feature at AFCON.
Are Leicester City closing in on a first signing of 2024?
According to this assessment, the east Midlands team are "edging towards" their initial acquisition during the January transfer window. With the market currently in full flow, LCFC are said to be on the lookout for options. However, manager Maresca recently suggested that "financial restrictions" may limit or halt possible agreements.
That said, the Foxes are pursuing Stefano Sensi of Inter Milan. This pretty much guarantee now, because Romano has weighed in. Before that, it was said that there is an interest and subsequently talks were apparently held. Now the famed journalist has confirmed that the Leicestershire outfit made an official approach for the out of favour midfielder on Tuesday.
Romano went on to clarify that discussions have been conducted by those concerned. Not to mention that Sassuolo, Sensi's former club, 'are not working on' any deal regarding the player. Incidentally, this athlete is capped by Italy at senior level, so I expect a certain calibre if Leicester can secure his services.
