Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers fooled most of us with his massive change in tactics and player selections for the game v. West Ham. A great win away with a number of those fantastic regulars absent could again start the rumor mill rolling.
Ricardo Pereira who was given a rest yesterday is heavily linked with a number of clubs seeing, as always, Manchester United in the chase, but Paris St Germain and Bayern Munich are also named among the admirers.
Andy King recently returned from a difficult loan spell at Rangers not really given a proper chance by Steven Gerrard but only been a cover as he has been at Leicester City for the last seasons. TCF believe that King will seek a new loan move away, with clubs in close range, such as Coventry City and Nottingham Forest among those ready offer regular first team football.
Rachid Ghezzal could be on his way back to Leicester in January but with a recent interest from Serie A club Atalanta, it could be a short return and again a new adventure giving the Algerian international a chance to compete in Champions League.
Adrien Silva and Islam Slimani are both doing well at Monaco playing regularly and being part of a team currently 7th in the French League. Not believed to be on the move somewhere and would see out their loan period at Monaco.
Talks about James Maddison and his possible move to Manchester United in a £80million transfer could probably be on, but not before the summer. Ben Chilwell is currently in demand as well as the England international is a target for Chelsea.
Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans are both also seen in the headlines being attractive for other clubs. Soyuncu seen as a possible Arsenal and Man City target, with Evans attracting Pep as well.
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers are looking to strengthen, but as he has said himself, he is happy with his current squad and after last nights display who wouldn’t be.
Filip Benkovic could open space for a new defender and an attacking option could be considered. Benkovic is closely linked with a loan move to Derby and that could be possible, open space for a defender, but with “Captain Morgan” just doing his business whenever called up on, you would probably not consider replacing him just yet.
TCF would have liked Zlatan to join, but he has decided to join AC Milan, a perfect addition who could come of the bench and play the odd game until the end of the season. A player with special skills, who could be similar.
Leicester are linked with a number of names, and Hakan Calhanoglu is back in the mill. The AC Milan midfielder looks though as a strange move with that area well covered, but again a link is a link.
Fenerbahce forward Vedat Muriqi is a name to look out for. He is notorious goalscorer and has done great in Turkish football over a number of years. His scoring ratio is “very good” and he is currently linked with Leicester. Muriqi is playing internationally for the nation of Kosovo.
TCF is not yet considering any links “hot” and they will be marked in the list when we feel they are. But a number of players are close to be described in that category with Jarrod Bowen from Hull to be considered if newspapers comes back linking him with Leicester City.
Here is our new and updated fresh list of possible targets and linked players.
