Leicester City are in the race for a place in Champions League next season, and they can of course progress from their position this season. This is not luck or a one season happening, it’s a team in the making with some of the best players in Premier League.
So to see rumours about Ben Chilwell, Wilfred Ndidi, James Maddison and a few more chased by other clubs should just be ignored by the owners as they all are on long term contracts and in a team that could challenge for a new PL title.
When you see the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City chasing the players of a club that at the moment are third, it’s a signal that shows how good this football team can be and are, despite a few setbacks in the restart of the season just managing draws against Brighton and Watford.
The key for Brendan Rodgers is to keep his players and add a bit of quality, and hopefully ship out those who are not regarded good enough for the bench. It’s a copy and paste formula of Pep and Jurgen Klopp who are the minds behind the best teams at the moment.
There could be space for one or two new players, but must admit being riddled by the way Brendan Rodgers picked his team for the Brighton game, just ignoring Graham Potter’s players and believe that Demarai Gray, Kelechi Iheanacho and Nampalys Mendy would be “good enough”, when you know inside your head that all of them would have struggled to get into the Brighton team.
The team that played against Watford, changing Albrighton with Perez, would be the ideal set up going forward and just change players if they are injured, fatigue or falling in performance.
None of the players linked at the moment would walk into the Leicester City team and therefor signing them would be totally idiotic and a player that looks close to a move William Carvalho might struggle to get in and would just become another sub seat warmer, and that is not the way forward.
