Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers will not be sitting still during summer and just wait for players to arrive for pre-season training. A few will probably not come back after the end either.

So far we have seen a number of players linked, mostly from abroad or from Scottish football, but we feel that, as we have seen in the past, players can come from the league below and really become great players at Leicester City.

Harry Maguire had been relegated with Hull City when he arrived at Leicester City. James Maddison was a rookie at Norwich City, and you have other examples of players joining for the level below who also took the Premier League level with storm.

The first to mention is Leeds wonder Kemar Roofe. He has been in great form for the Whites this season, but lately been out with injury. He is the perfect fit, able to fill the forward position as well as winger position. He’s the perfect age as well and one scoring goals from all angles and postions. His life as a footballer has been one very similar to other players who have come from a Premier League club, getting released, getting a chance at a lower level and stepped back up and could be a perfect signing for Leicester.

England U.20 international Ben Godfrey is one also to look out for. The 21 year old central defender has been in good form for Norwich City this season. A raw talent and a player with a great potential. Last season he played on loan at Shrewsbury Town. Started his senior career at York City after being released as a youngster at Middlesbrough. Godfrey is good on the ball and can also play in midfield.

Welsh international Harry Wilson is a player that has impressed this season on loan at Derby. Liverpool might have to off load the young talent who probably will be impatient and really be eager to get his Premier League breakthrough next season. He is a player who can operate wide and at the same time a good goalscorer, so hopefully one to have a look at.

Hull City captain and Norwegian international Markus Henriksen is another player that was linked with Leicester City in the January transfer window and will probably be back in the picture over the summer. The 26 year old former Rosenborg and AZ Alkmaar player has been in great form for both his club team and the Norwegian national team. A player that can operate well in the center and at the flank. He can even be used as a central defender on emergency.

A player that will be in demand this summer is Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and he is one that can be a future England international. Grealish has earlier been linked with Leicester City and many believed that Craig Shakespeare would be lucky in his chase two summers ago, but instead he stayed and has hopefully matured and would probably look for a return to Premier League action next season.

Birmingham City is struggling and local lad Che Adams, born in Leicester, is one that has impressed for The Blues this season. The athletic build youngster is one that can take his next step in football by joining another Midlands club, with probably Wolves also following his steps for the rest of the season.

The last name we will be mentioning is a player that has been on a rise. George Baldock, signed by Sheffield United from MK Dons in 2017. 26 years of age and established as the right back alternative at promotion pushing Blades. Pacy and full of energy with a great passing foot, one really to have as a possible alternative to Pereira and him pushing forward.
