We are mid November and still early days coming to potential signings in January, but the list is starting to fill up and a few names could be on the move to Leicester City.
Norwegian international Omar Ellabdellaoui is on an outgoing contract at Olympiakos and the full back is not unknown to English football. He has previously been playing on loan at Hull City in 2017 playing 8 games for The Tigers. He started his professional career with Manchester City.
TCF rates Omar Ellabdeallaui as a potential signing marking him as cool at the moment, but the fact that he has been in the rumour mill before and that he can go free in the summer could see him find a new club in January.
The fact that James Justin might seek a chance to go out on loan with little or no action so far, could make space for a new player. Daniel Amartey looks totally out in the cold and his time at Leicester City could be over by the January transfer window close.
Leicester are of course also in the market for a new central defender to replace Wes Morgan long term, but it’s not likely to happen anything in January, that would upset the balance of the squad too much and TCF believe that Brendan Rodgers will stick with Wes out the season. A move for the Norwegian international Kristoffer Ajer looks unlikely and we rate him as cold, but a move with a loan back to Celtic could be happening, but that would not count in real.
No secret that Leicester City are seeking a good cover for Jamie Vardy or a player that can do a bit of a job in the air, and a selection of forwards have been listed in the news. Our list is also worth a look.
The name Serhou Guirassy appear often and the 1,87m forward is a player to watch closely. Only 23 years of age and a past with German club 1FC Köln. The French U.20 international has scored a lot at youth international level, but so far not yet seen the tallys of goals fly to the roof, but still found the net on many occasions.
