Leicester City are of course in a position to buy and sell players during the January transfer window and this is the time when rumours are expanding going over and into the Christmas period.

Joao Mario is a name that keeps coming back and are constantly linked with a move to Leicester City, other names frequently mentioned in the press lately is Japanese Shoya Nakajima and Belgian international Thorgan Hazard.

On the departure side, Jamie Vardy is one player being linked with a move, and the fact that Wolves are the club targeting the former England international is a difficult rumour to accept. A fee of £25 million is, according to The Express, what Leicester City are asking and a price that will be accepted.

Adrien Silva is expected to make a return to Sporting Lisbon. Silva is not a regular in the Leicester City first team and to gain more international recognition, he might be able to get a move back to Portugal.

Leicester City looks certain to let a number of players who will be out of contract in the summer also get a chance to leave if the player himself is ready to move on. Shinji Okazaki is one that could be on his way out in January, with clubs back home in Japan, Bundesliga and Turkey all being reported to have an eye on the experienced forward.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel must decrease his squad but we feel that it  also needs a bit of strengthening. The players currently linked, are not the types you would see as first teamers straight away, but more objects that needs time to adapt to become first team regulars.

Claude Puel has done a lot of good in his judgement of new recruits, but it might be time to add super quality than promising quantity, certainly the first team needs a few new recruits to be able to keep momentum, and not new players are needed to fill the stands at King Power, that job has been done well in the last couple of seasons.
