Why Leicester City Should Do Everything To Bring This Middlesbrough Star At The King Power Stadium

Leicester City have been looking to make it a better season in the next term by bringing in players to revamp their current squad in the new season. The Foxes are especially concerned about the performance of their defence, with both their centre backs, Robert Huth and Wes Morgan aged over 30 and there is a huge possibility that both the players might be offloaded in the summer transfer window. This has called in for players to be brought into the side to replace the central defenders for the next season.

Reportedly, the Foxes have been eyeing an array of players to be brought into the side, amongst whom one who is considered to be right on top of the list is the Middlesbrough centre-back and inspirational captain Ben Gibson, who had a good season in the backline for Boro, but his efforts were too little too less to make his team skip the relegation zone, and they were sent down to the Championship for the next season.

The player has been in top form throughout the last season and gave his best to stabilize the defence for his club in the last term. This has attracted a number of big clubs to get his signature for the next season and strengthen their team. While Premier League clubs like Chelsea and Tottenham have been linked with the 24-year-old defender, clubs like West Bromwich Albion and Leicester City have been desperately looking to bring in the player to stabilise their backline, which has been a major reason of concern for both the clubs in the last season.

The English centre-back has been playing for Middlesbrough since 2011 and has a contract that will see him stay back at the club till 2021. However, with the club being relegated to the Championship, it is quite unlikely for their influential captain to stay back with them, as it might be detrimental for his international career.

Gareth Southgate, the current England manager has been quite fond of the 24-year-old defender and is hopeful that he has a good future with the national team. This is another big reason that the influential centre-back might look to make a change of teams and stay back into the Premier League for the next season as well.

Gibson has been an integral part of the Middlesbrough team since his arrival in 2011. He has played 153 matches so far for them and the club will have a big void to fill in case he leaves them next summer.
