Released West Ham forward Andy Carroll will not join his former club Newcastle United, with that move not realistic. Leicester City consider their options and the fact that Carrol’s services are available could be seen as a possibillity.
Islam Slimani is due to a possible exit, and Kelechi Iheanacho not really being seen as nothing else than a Jamie Vardy cover, could trigger Rodgers who at the moment have no player with the qualities Carroll possess.
Rodgers knows Carroll from his time at Liverpool, and to have a powerfull forward able to win battles in the air would be suitable.
Tottenham released forward Lloriente was earlier linked but no further talk has been seen about the player that can deliver something of the same.
Talks are that Leicester City have approached Burnley for the asking price on the England defender James Tarkowski, believed to be in the region of £40million. Nathan Ake, also linked, looks totally out of the picture with Bournemouth not willing to sell for less than £75million.
Leicester City are also said to be looking for another possible central defender, with Kristoffer Ajer linked. The Celtic defender is a class act and could be a shrewd move for Leicester City.
Abroad talk suggests Getafe’s Dakonam and Lazio defender Bastos as two good alternatives.
Denis Praet could also be on his way, with Rachid Ghezzal as part of a swap. Sampdoria looks eager to do business but Praet might be scared of the competituon for places.
The list of hot, cool and cold, is always worth a look as it is new and fresh with the latest updates.
