Leicester City looks close to confirm first summer signing with Timothy Castagne believed to be the player that first will arrive at King Power, and we can expect more moves to happen just after that.
Odsonne Eduoard looks to have slipped, but midfielder Callum McGregor is close to a medical according to the best of sources. McGregor (27) looks as a likely signing and bringing in more power and tackling ability in the midfield area.
Burnley flank midfielder Dwight McNeill, could also be in as Brendan Rodgers have found the players he likes to add to a squad that also will see a number of players leave, believed to be Dennis Praet (Torino) and Demarai Gray (Spurs) who both have played in pre-season but might seek new adventures to be able to play more regular first team football.
Ryan Loft who was a U.23 player at Leicester City and signed from Tottenham Hotspur has since being released moved to Scunthorpe United. Loft spent last season on loan at Carlisle United and might be in the correct element joining a League One club.
Why Leicester City are so keen to sign Timothy Castagne to be the ideal replacement for Ben Chilwell, might be strange since he is a right footed player and currently playing at right-back at Atalanta, but his ability to play in different positions and also the fact that he can play further up the field makes him an ideal player as Brendan Rodgers looks to flirt with a three men defence and then Castagne can be pushed up to also play in a flank midfield role.
Timothy Castagne has earlier been close to joining Brendan Rodgers at Celtic, with Lee Congerton the man to trust to finally get the player they once chased a few years back but Atalanta won the race back then.
But as we try to look in the crystal ball we might be wrong as so many players are linked with Leicester City, but with Sky Sports starting to recognize these rumours and finally putting their mark on a player, he should be close.
