According to a report, Leicester City Football Club's financial issues and possible sanctions mean that the Foxes are at risk of losing six star players this summer. This latest update will undoubtedly further concern City supporters. In addition to examining that matter, Foxes of Leicester cover speculation that an important Foxes midfielder is being chased by a rising Premier League club which just so happens to be a Midlands rival of LCFC. FoL on the latest from King Power Stadium

I am absolutely positive that the majority of Leicester fans reading this article will not want to talk about or dwell on the unnerving Millwall loss which transpired on Tuesday night. If that is the case, you can skip the following paragraph and go directly to the subsequent one.

The Foxes required all three points from a midweek clash with the Lions in order to continue improving their form. Not to mention maintain pressure on Ipswich Town as well as Leeds United, the main competitors for automatic promotion from the Championship back to the Premier League. Even a draw at The Den would have been disappointing for the King Power side, to be honest. So defeat is a real disheartening setback for LCFC.

23-year-old winger Ryan Longman bagged the winner for the relegation candidates, who gained an unlikely victory. Leicester were totally dominant possession-wise; as we have seen this season, sadly, having the ball doesn't always equal a win. Undoubtedly, Enzo Maresca will not change his style at this point of the campaign, if at all. City also had the most shots, by the way. Nevertheless, the south Londoners were victorious on the evening in their battle for English second division survival.

Leicester City have financial woes and constraints - FoL's view

One piece of City news may actually worry the Blue Army more than the uneven performances and results at the moment: probable financial restrictions and very real limitations. Leicester City are reportedly set to sue the EPL and EFL due to a transfer embargo being imposed upon them. This punishment was enforced because of supposed profit and sustainability rule breaches. At this stage the accusations are alleged, in legal terminology.

Therefore those with expiring contracts - Jamie Vardy, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Jannik Vestergaard, Marc Albrighton, and Dennis Praet - may become free agents soon. Here is more:

"There is no end date set for the embargo [to end]. It is likely to come when the EFL are satisfied City have met or are trying to meet Profit and Sustainability thresholds, which will mean selling players in June."

Vital Leicester City midfielder eyed by Wolverhampton Wanderers

Leicester might perhaps lose an integral member of the squad to a fairly close team:

"According to a report from HITC, Wolves are one of several Premier League clubs keeping tabs on Leicester's Wilfred Ndidi.

Firstly, the report from HITC names all of Tottenham, Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Brighton as clubs who are also interested in signing the Nigerian. At least one of Tottenham and Aston Villa are expected to secure Champions League football for the 2024/25 season, which may prove a key negotiating factor when Ndidi's contract comes up in the summer."
