Patson Daka will consider his future at Leicester in the summer. He recently scored a goal against Chelsea at King Power Stadium, but has not yet managed to convince Brendan Rodgers about his ability to be the main alternative top forward at Leicester.
There are three equals for this position at Leicester with Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy also in contention to play, and Brendan Rodgers struggles to find a formula working to use all three of them on a regular basis.
This also makes it difficult for all three to settle with the scenario that their manager will not give them time to be that certain number 9, not either eager to play them all, as he do not trust them as flank alternatives.
Former Chelsea manager and now Zamba chief coach Avram Grant is not happy with the situation as his preferred first choice is not a steady performer in the first eleven at Leicester and lives a life of uncertainty, regarding a first team starting position.
Chelsea are currently in change and will part company with a number of players in the summer, and at present they do not have a clear first choice up front. They are missing a target man and as we all know, Graham Potter is a man that spots potential.
The way Graham Potter build his Brighton side, was all about potential and growing togehter to become the unit he managed to create. His eye for the correct signing is one to understand, as Patson Daka could be what Chelsea are in search for.
The Zambian international scored goals on delivery at RB Salzburg. 68 goals in 125 club appearances. His tally at Leicester is so far 15 in 68. This is not bad considering that many of his games played are from the subs bench.
To be able to score goals regularly you of course need team mates being able to find you with the correct passes and also getting to chances that will see you convert. Still not more than 24 years of age, as the 1.83m do have a presence that is ideal for the top forward position.
Brendan Rodgers has not really made his mind up regarding this position and looks to be in great doubt and uncertainty regarding who to play up front.
Leicester do have a number of issuess to solve, and first they need to be certain they are staying up, but still Patson Daka could be on his way out and his advisors, most certainly being one is former Chelsea boss Avram Grant, will try to see him being part of a set up that gives him more regular game time.
