Foxes summer shorts, Wigan sign defender, Roma and Chelsea favourites, Dortmund chasing youngster

DATE: 31.07.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Wigan confirm the year loan signing of Callum Elder, a good move for the young Australian defender. Mahrez and Gray not happy at City both are looking for new options

Craig Shakespeare needs to balance his squad in the best way possible. At the moment he has a few challenges, but hopefully he will settle his problems fast and if a new player needs to come in, he will probably make a move in the market.

City are favourites to sign Man City forward Kelechi Iheanacho, but the move has dragged out, due to some representation questions, not involving the football clubs, so we are hopefull that this move will go through.

A number of players are linked with the club, and the current situation regarding Gylfi Sigurdsson is another transfer saga that has dragged out. If the Icelandic international decides to join Everton and not Leicester, James McCarthy could be a preferred option.

Demarai Gray is today linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund, and a move to the Bundesliga and getting a chance to play there on a regular basis would be fantastic for him, but the move will be one difficult to convert.

Craig Shakespeare is eager to keep a player who is under a long term contract, but at the same time you can't just keep players and making them dry. A loan move could suit both parties, but again Shakespeare knows that he needs Gray.

Riyad Mahrez is still a City player and it is a bit of riddle why Shakespeare continues to play Mahrez in pre-season if someone will buy him soon. The rumours will not go away and today Italian websites talks about a medical.

Danny Drinkwater is today being linked with Chelsea. That is one coming straight out of the blue, so to speak, but we just have to see what will happen. Drinkwater is a Man Utd fan, but to join up with Kante in West London might not be the worst thing to do.

We have updated out hot, cool and cold list with the latest rumours. Hopefully Shakespeare will find his formula, but at the moment the squad is not balanced in full and players are added with "the wrong impression".

Maguire looks certain to start in the centre of midfield together with Morgan. Benalouane is an option, so is Amartey. Simpson is ok to the right, Johnson and Amartey will be good options if he stops performing to his best level.

Fuchs is a first choice, Chilwell next, Elder is gone to Wigan. All looks ok.

In midfield Albrighton is a certainty, among the other flank midfielders there are uncertainty. Gray is linked with Dortmund, Lawrence could be sold to Brighton. Musa is not either convinced he will be playing enough to keeps match fitness and progress.

Drinkwater is ok, Ndidi is in favour, but what about Iborra. Playing Iborra means the you will go for three in midfield, and use Iborra either behind Drinkwater and Ndidi or in front of them, just behind Vardy up front.

Okazaki, Ulloa and Slimani are all uncertain about their position, Vardy will play. Iheanacho could also find himself a bit uncertain, since the only safe position up front is the one with Jamie Vardy on.

With so few players certain of a position in the team and still a number of days before the season kicks of it looks a bit difficult to find the "happy factor".

You cannot have more than 3 players unhappy and uncertain of their position. To see so many players eager to compete for places and at the same time, making too many changes from game to game will be a factor of uncertainty.

Would like to see the team progress. Would also like to see a certainty about Mahrez and Gray, because having them in the squad, without being happy is not good, despite how professional they are, it will always affect the group.

You need 11 players in which 9 are certain, two can be on the edge, then three or four should be close to the team, four or five happy with being in and around the team and a few young hungry players looking at being in a City squad as the most fantastic thing in the world.
