Jeremie Boga (25) looks to be leaving Atalanta. Leicester is not the only team to chase the former Chelsea youngster. But there are a number of warning signes to look at with the Ivorian international not really showing the quality needed to push for a starting position in Premier League.
To see yet another fringe alternative being chased by Leicester is dull and really not something we as fans likes to see. Boga has been invovled in just 6 Serie A games this season, and he looks far from what is needed.
You can of course be surprised and a move could work wonders for players, but this time we feel it would be one signing to forget. Ademola Lookman did join Atalanta and has so far scored 7 in 15 appearances. He was mostly on the fringe at Leicester last season and to see one player who struggles to get into this line-up makes it difficult to understand how he could become a major asset for Leicester.
Boga made major impact at Sassoulo over his four years at the club, but since joining Atalanta he has not really managed to settle. Marseille might be the winner of this race as the French Ligue1 could be a better alternative for the player.
Leicester need to work hard to get more players from the academy coming through and to by or loan fringe players is a bad idea and should not really be done, even if it gives you some sort of cover.
Marc Albrighton, Ayoze Perez and Tawanda Maswanhise should be players to call for if you have problems. Kelechi Iheanacho, Patson Daka, Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy are still much better alternatives among three players up front than the man who has not really been much of use at Atalanta, currently 6th in Serie A.
