The latest on Leicester City’s defender chase, Daniel Amartey and Demarai Gray

It’s no secret that Leicester City are running a race to try to tie down James Tarkowski of Burnley, being after the England international for almost a year. Burnley are not trying to stop a move, but would surely try to get as much as possible for one of their most valuable players.

We don’t have anything concrete about a possible move for James Tarkowski, as the most serious sources of the media channels has not yet spoken openly about anything happening. Today a rumour about Kurt Zouma appeared for the first time and we have seen a number of names linked over a period of time.

As long as new names are thrown into the hat, and others at the club are doing well, we might not see James Tarkowski in a Leicester City shirt as money might be saved for other options, but we don’t believe the story is at an end.

Yesterday Brazilian defender Gleison Bremer was mentioned, today Kurt Zouma turned up as an alternative, and with Jonathan Tah and James Tarkowski still in the race we just have to wait a few days more for that defender signing to appear.

Leicester City have agreed to sell Fousseni Diabatte who will next season play for Turkish club Trabzonspor, and hopefully add more experience to a career that could be pushing up and forward with the talented winger getting more first team experience.

Demarai Gray is today linked with Leeds and also seen Newcastle and Spurs in the chase earlier on, but for Demarai it’s all about first team football when making his next move and to join Leeds could be the best option for the England U.21 international.

Daniel Amartey made his second appearance in just a few days being a starter against Arsenal and keeping his place in the team v. Man City. He did well in both games and might have a future, though his presence was down to lack of options and a certain Wilfred Ndidi missing the game through injury. Fulham and Stuttgart were both mentioned as possible new destinations, but with a contract running until to the summer of 2022, Brendan Rodgers do have the advantage and probably not that eager to do any business yet.

Darnel Johnson who at 22 is close to a “be or not to be” at Leicester City could be joining Wigan on loan for the season. To be able to play games on a regular basis in The Championship must be good and the most important for Darnel at this stage in his career is to start playing first team football.
