Leicester City might be among the best clubs to find the best talents, either out in French lower leagues or in the hidden departments of English football. So where will “the rabit jump” this spring and summer. One that is really a “hidden secret” is our very own Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, please Brendan Rodgers, give this man a chance.
Looking a bit in the “hidden corners” you have a number of players that could be potential “diamonds” as we did see with the two James’s, Justin and Maddison, signed from Luton Town and Norwich City.
Both players are “diamonds” and we believe that James Justin will follow James Maddison into become a full England international. If Brendan Rodgers decide to let either Ricardo Pereira or Ben Chilwell move on, Justin should be given a run in the first team and we will most certainly see a new England international in the making.
Leicester City do have Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall who at the moment is out on loan to Blackpool, and his talent is of course among those 10 to watch. He is a clever passer of the ball, has a great vision and can also score goals from midfield. We know that Brendan Rodgers is fully aware of his talent and hopefully he will get a chance, and be among a group of five midfielder to fight for three places in the midfield.
24 year old Said Benrahma currently with Brentford is a right winger to watch, a player that could see his best years in the Premier League coming. He has currently scored 20 goals in 72 league games for The Bees. The Algerian international will most certainly be on his way somewhere soon.
The current front runners in League One, Coventry City also have a number of talented players, and as we all know the place were James Maddison started out. Zain Westbrook left Brentford to join Coventry and his presence at Sky Blues is a key to their current success. The 23 year old has shined this season and should be watched by a number of clubs as he progress.
22 year old Ademola Lookman is one player that has been a bit in the shadows as his presence at Everton and now Red Bull Leipzig has not really made him progress. With other players being preferred at both clubs he could be, still only 22, one to watch as his potential looks huge. His start at Leipzig was phenomenal, scoring 5 in 11 games, but since signing a full contract things have not been as planned.
So who will be the next “Virgil Van Dijk” and were do we find such a player in the making. Are there anyone in English football that could go all the way and become as good as the Liverpool defender.
A player to watch is 19 year old forward Rhian Brewster. The player is still Liverpool property but currently on loan at Swansea where he has scored 4 goals in 11 games since joining in January. This is an exciting player that maybe Liverpool will be willing to off load as he might not be ready for the first team at Anfield just yet. He is one of those England players from that U.17 World Cup winning team, so he should be followed and watched over a period of time.
Leicester City needs to look other places to find players and are often linked with players abroad. The list is of course updated with those mentioned. But again to have a squad with too many foreigners is a bit of difficulty as they often looks at Leicester City as a stepping stone for other chances in higher places.
Jonathan Panzo still only 19 years of age and at the moment on loan from Monaco to Cercle Brugge. The young defender should be watched closely and be on a short list of possible signings together with Manchester United’s youngster Axel Tuanzebe and Chelsea talent Fikayo Tomori who both could see their careers flourish getting a chance at Leicester City.
There are of course a number of talented players at Chelsea that soon will get tired of being just seen as fringe players, with the names Ruben Loftus-Cheek is in a place that could see a possible move possible.
Manchester United also have a jewel in Mason Greenwood who at the moment must be waiting and not being seen as a regular first teamer, clubs such as Leicester City, West Ham and Everton will of course monitor the situation.
So here are our list of talents to watch
- Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall
- Said Benrahma
- Zain Westbrook
- Ademola Lookman
- Rhian Brewster
- Jonathan Panzo
- Ruben Loftus-Cheek
- Mason Greenwood
- Axel Tuanzebe
- Fikayo Tomori
