Leicester City have been nowhere near the form they showed in the season prior to the last one, where they won the Premier League, to the ultimate surprise of the whole football fraternity and established themselves as the new powerhouse of European football. However, last season saw the severe downfall of the champions, as they not only gave up their title to current champions Chelsea but also slumped to a tenth position finish on the league table.
Next season, though, the Foxes are looking to make a new start to the season and are determined to find their old form back under their new coaches Craig Shakespeare and his assistant Michael Appleton. They are, of course, in dire need of players who can help them turn the tables and make every effort count in their favour throughout the next term.
Reportedly, the Foxes are eyeing some of the players in the summer transfer market, who have made an impact for their teams in the last few seasons. They have already bagged two of the recognised players, in the form of midfielder Vicente Iborra, the former captain of Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla and the solid centre-back Harry Maguire from Hull City, who were relegated in the last term.
Having found players who can be the mainstays in their defence and midfield, the Foxes have now turned their focus towards sharpening their attack. A number of players have been listed down by the men in charge at the King Power Stadium, with one of them being the Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho.
The young Nigerian has been one of the most highly regarded forwards who have been playing in the Premier League in the last few seasons and has dished out a number of match-winning performances for his side in the recent past. However, in the last season, he was compelled to take a back seat with the arrival of the new coach Pep Guardiola, who used him only on 20 occasions throughout the season in the Premier League.
The Spaniard brought in Gabriel Jesus, the sensational Brazilian striker from Palmeiras, in January to make the competition steep for the 20-year-old Nigerian striker and since then he has been used in bits and pieces by Guardiola. This has reportedly caused the very talented forward to find a new club, who can offer him regular starts.
