Brendan Rodgers first signing was Luton Town defender James Justin. TCF predicted this move a long time ago, placing it as “hot” over the last weeks. Youri Tielemans is said to be “very close” to a deal and hopefully everyhting will be in place next week.
We have also had Tielemans in our hot section for a while and he will stay there until the move is confirmed, but of course, no one has signed on the dotted line yet. To get Youri Tielemans would be perfect, and confirm the story of a club that aim to set their goals high.
Today another player starts to circulate a lot and a number of serious sources describes Genk flank midfielder Mbwana Samatta as a player chased by Leicester City. He has been on our “hot, cool and cold” list for a while, but today we will be bold and place him in the “hot” zone.
This is a rumor that makes sense but Leicester City are in the chase with a number of other clubs. Samatta is a player that fits the description of what has been said are one of the destined targets this summer.
Leicester City flank or wide men alternatives, struggled last season to score goals. A young Harvey Barnes had a lot chances but couldn’t convert his attempts as much as we would have liked. Marc Albrighton, Rachid Ghezzal and Demarai Gray are other flank players who have struggled to score, despite creating their opportunities.
Goals are surely no problem for Mbwana Samatta who scored 32 last season. He is an experienced player available for a fair price, said to be in the region of £11million. The 26 year old Tanzania international will be an exciting addition if he joins, and we believe that interest is there for the former teammate of Wilfred Ndidi.
Ali Reghba, first and for all a player for the future, looks certain to build on his trial in January and sign a permanent deal with Leicester City. He is surely a prospect to look out for and often described as a younger version of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
We have a fresh and newly updated hot, cool and cold list for you to look at.
