We all know that Brendan Rodgers can’t afford to make mistakes this summer as he tries to bring in key players to fill gaps and be part of a settled group of 18 to 19 players, having more will just water out quality and stress players that are out of the first team picture for long periods.
Bauba Soumare, Jannik Vestergaard, Youri Tielemans and Caglar Soyuncu could all be players to let leave in the summer. Dennis Praet and Hamza Choudhury are others. To find the right replacements will be crucial.
Lokonga has had his troubles at Arsenal but alongside a player like Wilfred Ndidi or Nampalys Mendy he will be a revelation. TCF is doubtful to the hype of KDH as his presence seldom gives the team what is impotant to get wins over the line, but again early days and hopefully his game can get more result taking.
Ademola Lookman is another risk to sign as he will just be fringe. If Ayoze Perez is said to be sold a player like Nicolas Pepè will have the quality needed to lift the building. Pepè and Lokonga are both players not really talked much about when it comes to get Arsenal back to top level.
The key for Leicester this summer is not quantity but pure quality.
Both Pepè and Lokanga are internationals and they are eager to get their revenge. They have shown in the past that they can play fantastic, and their highest level is one to really recognize.
Lokonga joined Arsenal last summer for a fee of £17million from Anderlecht and has been part of the Belgium set up. Pepè and Lokonga are both probably frustrated with lack of starts this season. Pepè did only 20 appearances, 15 as a sub. Lokonga played 19 times, 7 as a sub.
Looking at Lokonga and his best skills you will find the long ball, the through ball and his ability to see those passes that can give Jamie Vardy, Harvey Barnes and a possible Nicolas Pepè all those crucial goal chances, what a party this could be.
