Defender chase, Leicester in race with Newcastle and Aston Villa

Brendan Rodgers will be out looking for a number of players over the summer, and a central defender might be on his list of targets, maybe two. We have seen late reports about Rangers defender Filip Helander and Celtic’s Kristoffer Ajer.

Helander is a proven Swedish international with a previous life in Italian football before joining Rangers in 2019 and of course enjoying life in Scotland, winning the SPL. Kristoffer Ajer who has been an established first choice in defence at Celtic, was last summer linked with Leicester, but now it seems that Newcastle are front runners and that a move could happen.

With a three men defense under establishment at Leicester and of course a lack of contenders to the current starters, Soyuncu, Evans and Fofana, and with Fuchs and Morgan set to be released in te summer, uncertainty about Filip Benkovic struggling a bit to get to his best.

Benkovic has this season been on loan at Cardiff City and at the moment with “sister club” Leuven in Belgium, but so far not been much involved, left mostly as a sub, all waiting for him to get his real breakthrough after injuries and loss of form.

TCF would not be surprised to see an addition of a central defender in the summer, but again we have been surprised before, but of course Filip Helander is a name to add, with Ajer a possible candidate as well.
