Most players are back to train, coming into the camp at Seagrave one by one in the last week. Enzo Maresca is preparing his squad for what to come next, but still just three games scheduled for pre-season, and little or nothing to report rather then player returning from different international duties.

TCF believe that keeping the current squad together would be an ideal scenario and also adding Jonny Evans to the group, but so far he has not turned up and probably weighing his options closely as next step might be the last of his football career.

Harvey Barnes and Timothy Castagne are the two players Leicester probably needs to ship out frist to get the transfers fees of those two into the pocket, before new moves for other players are set. At this point little or no more moves can be done, since the squad is still heavy and full of players who we do not know if will be sold, as buyers and prices must be in line with expectations.

Looking at the picture in real, we do believe that it could be uncertainty regarding the squad all up until the start of the season, with offers on almost every player to consider.

George Hirst is also back after a great loan spell at Ipswich, helping the former top club back to The Championship, and he looks a hot object for a number of clubs, and a bit down the pecking order up front at the current set, so to see him staying might be a difficult one.

Good to see that Kelechi Iheanacho is back from international duty together with Wilfred Ndidi, both players also chased and could be available at the right price. Ndidi has cought interest from Celtic and Saudi Arabia, while Kelechi Iheanacho was a said to be a target for Everton and Forest.

Enzo Maresca has a difficult task ahead as we do not really have the clear picture of this squad establishiment, believed to see both Timothy Castagne and Harvey Barnes on the way out in the next week, anyhthing else would be a surprise.
