Leicester are searching for players, but it looks a bit difficult to get what they are looking for. The latest name to be linked with the club is Nicolas Gonzalez from Fiorentina. The 24 year old Argentinian international missed the World Cup in Qatar due to injuries, but was part of the team and squad when winning Copa America in 2021.
Previously a player with Stuttgart and Argentina Juniors. He has to date played 21 times for his country, scoring 3 goals. This season has been a bit of a nightmare, being sidelined, and still is, with a thigh strain. He is believed to be back in action in February, being out since early November .
Leicester made one move in the summer, bringing in Wout Faes, a player of a certain standard, that had made his full international debut for Belgium and in the squad for the World Cup in Qatar, and to see another player of international standard being close and in reach for the club, shows what type of search Brendan Rodgers is on.
This is in a way good news as we do see quality chased, but again a number of names seen linked in the past might be out of the picture, as transfer expert Fabrizio Romano believe it will be a bit of action at the club until the end of the transfer window.
Fiorentina is a club that looks pragmatic regarding players, trying to bring in as much cash as possible to sign new faces as we did see last term. Dusan Vlahovic decided on joining Juventus instead of Leicester that was linked with the Serbian international.
Nico Gonzales is a player that this season has had his troubles, but at his best of course a massive signing. He is also a player who could again a player that could use Leicester as a stepping stone towards the very top, as we have seen in the past with several other players, but again this is what you have to live with.
Nicolas Gonzales is a major name and a player representing the current World Cup winner and if fit, part of that team. A massive signal if Leicester can pull off this move. James Maddison and Youri Tielemans could both be triggered as they have contract offers from Leicester that financially is difficult for other clubs to match.
We have not yet pushed this rumour higher than “cool” in our list.
