Leicester City have failed to challenge the ‘Big Six’ ever since their fairy tale 2015-16 Premier League season. The Foxes have registered themselves as a midtable side in the past three years, and the managerial alterations did not work out in their favour either. However, they have now parted ways with Claude Puel after a series of disappointing outcomes and roped in Brendan Rodgers from Celtic who grabbed the opportunity to return to Premier League after an eventful stint with Liverpool between 2012 to 2015.
Rodgers maintained sheer supremacy in Scottish football and was on course of clinching ‘treble treble’ during his regime. But he is now plotting a raid on his former club and snapping up Dedryck Boyata once his contract runs out at Parkhead at the end of the ongoing campaign, according to the Mirror.
The outlet further reports his interest in John McGinn, the former Hibernian midfield star who was in Celtic’s radar but ended up with Aston Villa in the second tier. The gaffer is also eying a swoop for Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson, the £40m-rated striking sensation previously linked to Chelsea.
Although a squad overhaul is quite unlikely at the King Power, Rodgers is understandably focusing on rebuilding the core to replace the ageing stars. Skipper Wes Morgan, now 35, is at the twilight of his illustrious career and a move for ‘Bosman’ Boyata would be a clever move from the former Parkhead chief. The 28-year-old Belgium international would slot straight in Leicester’s backline to partner Harry Maguire.
Leicester, meanwhile, are lacking creativity in the middle of the park and in need of someone who would be a driving force with box-to-box movements. Wilfred Ndidi is more suited as a defensive medio whereas James Maddison is the best fit for an attacking midfield role. But they require quality to bridge the gap between these two and Leicester City should try their luck by acquiring McGinn due to his energetic and effective presence in the centre of the pitch.
Jamie Vardy is a popular figure in the East Midlands, but the Leicester ‘number 9′ has been a shadow of his earlier self. He is now in his thirties and does not have many years left in him to spearhead the Foxes’ frontline. The Three Lions star, however, is the greatest of names to represent this prestigious football club and should be replaced by someone who is as prolific as him in front of goal.
Callum Wilson, his fellow countryman, has exhibited his scoring attributes persistently in the top flight of English football and a move for the Bournemouth ace would be a strong statement of intent from the new Leicester manager.
