Breaking news, player ready for Friday opener, but still nervous

DATE: 05.08.2018 / TCF - FILBERTWAY

As earlier reported and among our players on our hot, cool and cold list, Rachid Ghezzal is now officially confirmed as Leicester City property

The former Lyon and Monaco player has a past under Claude Puel and they know each other from the time he played at Lyon. This is a player that has decided to become an Algerian international, after being capped at U.20 level for France.

Exciting signing, and in a form a Mahrez replacement, but still different. With Gray uncertain for Friday, Puel had few options and as we all coud see used Pereira in a flank position against Lille. Ghezzal will be a good option on the flank.

Ghezzal could be starting the game against Manchester United, with Gray uncertain and Diabate not yet as convincing as we would like to see him. Tcf rate this signing as one with potential and hopefully one for the team, and not another squad filler.

There could, as we earlier predicted, be one or two more signings, and if or when Harry Maguire makes his move to Manchester United, Puel is ready to try to sign a promising defender with Chris Mepham being the latest target to be named.

Mepham is allready a Wales full international, at the age of 20. A defender coming up through the youth system at Chelsea and targeted by Brentford, who are known for their great cleverness in spotting talent and getting the best out players who are forgotten at bigger clubs.

Leicester have accordingly made a 10 million offer for Mepham, but the value of the 20 year old is higher and Brentford turned it down. We just have to wait and see if Puel will make a new attempt with a higher bid.

News late Sunday is that Jose Mourinho and Manchester United will try to tempt Leicester City with a major offer for Harry Maguire. Jose Mourinho is ready to bid 80 million, and with that kind of money, it would be difficult to resist.

Harry Maguire is one player at the heights of his career and the money is at this moment not the question for the player, dreaming of a permanent place in a top four PL club is. Of course it would be a great loss, but again life will go on.

Leicester City have in the previous two seasons, before Maguire, played with Robert Huth, Wes Morgan and Yohan Benalouane as the three players covering the central defence. Winning the PL and later a 12th finish.

We have a new fresh and updated hot, cool and cold list to view, and don't miss out on all the great interviews, documentaries and other updates from the tv channels "city-extra", "tcfone" and "retrotv".
