The transfer window is at present shut, but that does not stop scouts from travelling and looking at players, seeing them in the eye of the manager they work for and come back with reports telling what they have seen, and how they feel this player will fit into your type of football, system and of course dressing room.
Reports are that Leicester are out looking trying to find a new option if some of our current attackers could see a move happening. We all know what happened earlier on with Kelechi Iheanacho sitting out most games, getting a chance and taking it and again Brendan Rodgers has placed the Nigerian international on the bench.
His current situation is of course monitored and we did see an attempt from Roma, but nothing happened in this window. Kelechi Iheanacho is hot at the moment and will be also in the months coming up, the problem for Rodgers is that he also have other options up front and right now having a selection dilemma, with players getting rusty sitting out game after game.Embed from Getty Images
The player that Leicester scouts were looking at, according to reports, was New England Revelution forward Adam Buksa. He joined the MLS in 2020 and so far played 46 games and scored 16 goals, a good tally, but not massive. His scoring record in the national team might be one to watch as he has scored 4 in 3 internationals.
A very tall player, 1.91m, and one that can be a treath in the air. Leicester did have a number of very tall strikers with a good header as a trademark, but we have to go back a few years to really find the very tallest forward ever to play for the club, Ian Ormondroyd.
A tall forward can have it’s benefits as you get other alternatives in a game and you can change the rythm and play to score goals and of course getting more pressure inside the penalty box.
We will soon be back with an updated as fresh list of new hot, cool, cold rumours, but still a bit left before the January transfer window opens, but be looking in as we will update it from early next month.
