The rumour of Philippe Coutinho and his supposed move to Leicester City looks dead and buried and not something that will happen, and it might be the best solution long term as Leicester City not really are in the market for “big names” as we have seen in the past, instead nursing forward great talent.
The player that has been linked a lot lately is Swansea City defender Joe Rodon and the tall 22 year old Wales international defender is a name that we believe will be an ideal signing and short term being a replacement for Wes Morgan and long term maybe one that can challenge Jonny Evans for a first team position.
There are a number of names linked and as TCF sees it, it could be three to four new players added to the squad with as many as seven players looking for new chance elsewhere.
Players such as Wes Morgan, Andy King, Matty James, Adrien Silva, Nampalys Mendy, Islam Slimani and Eldin Jakupovic are all on the way out and we just have to wait and see how many players Brendan Rodgers will add to his squad, but we believe that he will try to get a strong 25 men squad in total.
A player that so far is not linked with Leicester City but believed to be on his way to Premier League is Inter’s talented forward Lautaro Martinez (22). He has a lot of competition at Inter and a move could give him a great push and Leicester City could be the ideal club to join. Since his debut in 2018 he has scored 17 goals in 49 games and is a very interesting player. He has also scored 9 goals in 17 games for Argentina.
A forward, a central defender and a flank midfielder is believed to be first on the list of new players to sign and hopefully young and fresh talents are what will be taken in, not old or very expensive stars that really would suit other clubs better.
