We have not yet seen a single transfer of importance in or out at Leicester this summer. We have learned from previous years that it could drag out and sometimes things are not finished even in time to reach an agreement before a window close. Leicester looks to get the best deal possible.
The national coach of Norway Stale Solbakken has earlier learned his lessons and expressed a bit of frustation negotiating the deal for Daniel Amartey when he was in charge of FC Copenhagen.
Solbakken looked at Leicester as difficult and made his point clear on how a battle with Leicester could look like as we all know for how long Leicester had their eyes on the Ghana international. Amartey was linked with a move to Leicester even before he joined FC Copenhagen from Djurgarden as they followed the development of him. Solbakken and his FC Copenhagen finally sold Amartey to Leicester in January 2016.
Sander Berge is one player to rate as his presence at Sheffield United is known. He is also a player that has been linked with a move away from Bramhall Lane. Stale Solbakken had his say about Berge during June’s Nations League internationals as he said it was time to step up for his midfield maestro.
Leicester would be the perfect fit for Berge as his tall presence and ball controll would have him as a utility midfielder for Brendan Rodgers. He can operate deep in a defensive role but also have capacity to go forward and score goals. He is a very good distributer and with him and Ndidi in the team you would have covered a lot of space in the midfield area, dream duo.
Berge is currently on pre-season tour with Sheffield United in Portugal and he has started the campaign in the best way possible with a goal in the 2-1 win vs. Casa Pia. Werder Bremen is said to have placed a bid of £17,9million, but still far from the transfer clause of £35million in his contract.
We will see if Leicester will look at this as a possible option with a lot of uncertainty at the moment and no real transfer momentum so far.
