Leicester City Continue To Keep Tabs On Crystal Palace Winger: Should The Foxes Go All Out?

Leicester City’s season in the Premier League is getting worse by the day owing to their dismal performance. The Foxes have faced four losses and two draws in their first seven matches so far this season, with their only win coming against newcomers Brighton and Hove Albion by 2-0.

The Foxes’ boss Craig Shakespeare is absolutely desperate to get his side back on the winning track and is in dire need of players who can support the team well in the future and score goals for them.

The English tactician is eyeing a number of options to be brought into the side, one of them being his compatriot Andros Townsend, who is currently playing for the Premier League side Crystal Palace. The winger arrived at the club in the year 2016, but has failed to find a solid foothold in the starting lineup and has eventually fallen down the pecking order.

With Shakespeare looking desperate for wins in the future, the Foxes might look to pounce on the opportunity to sign him as they look to add to their attacking options. He might also be a viable addition to the side as there is a chance that they might lose their talisman Riyad Mahrez in the near future.

Known for his immense physicality and ability to run into the opposition defence down the flanks and his ability to deliver crisp passes into the attacking third, Townsend might turn out to be a perfect squad player for the Foxes. His ability to lay down assists can also come in handy in for the Former Premier League champions, to improve their chances in front of goal.

However, the inability to dish out consistent performances throughout his career can be a detrimental factor to choose the player in the starting lineup, as has been the case in the previous seasons for the English international. He might yet be an integral part of the squad at Palace as they don’t have a better option than him to use in the absence of Wilfried Zaha.

Leicester City are looking desperate to get back to the tremendous form they showed in the 2015/16 Premier League season and went on to lift the trophy and are hopeful that the inclusion of the English forward might help them in their pursuit. However, there is very less possibility that the Eagles will let go of Townsend in the next transfer window.

Should Leicester go all out for him?
