Hull City are looking to let go of a number of players in the current transfer market, with the Tigers having slipped down into the second tier for the next season. They have already lost four players in the form of Harry Maguire, Tom Huddlestone, Josh Tymon and Harvey Rodgers and are not too far from losing their fifth one this summer in the form of goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic.
The 32 year old has been subject to a move to the King Power Stadium , with the former Premier League champions Leicester City looking to add a shot stopper. As per sources, the club is looking for a player who can play as a back-up for their number one Kasper Schmeichel, as they are looking to bring in players to strengthen their team for the next term.
The Swiss international joined the Tigers in 2012 and has been playing for them on quite a regular basis. The goalkeeper has stood beneath the crossbar for Hull City on 54 occasions and has made a strong statement with his ball handling abilities and safeguarding the defence throughout his term with the Tigers. However, it might come to an end with the Swiss shot stopper making a move out of the club this summer.
Leicester City could not replicate the form in the last season, which they shown during their Premier League winning campaign in the 2015/16 season. They were dismal in their execution throughout the whole season and finished at a lowly 12th position on the league table.
However, the Foxes are looking more determined than ever under their new manager Craig Shakespeare and have been looking to make amends for their mistake in the last term. They have already started revamping their side and have got their hands on two of the finest players in Europe in the form of defensive midfielder Vicente Iborra from Spanish La Liga side Sevilla and Harry Maguire from Hull City.
The Foxes are again looking poised to raid the Tigers, this time in order to get their 32 year old shot stopper to fill in the position of a back-up goalkeeper. With the kind of experience Jakupovic has under his belt, it can be helpful for the former Premier League champions to have someone like him with them in the next season.
Leicester are looking forward to giving their best in the next season, shrugging off the disappointments of the last term and hope for good results ahead. So can Jakupovic help them?
