Five players for Leicester City to build top four case
Matt Haynes | November 3, 2015
Coral discuss Leicester City, looking at a talking point which will no doubt gather a lot of interest in the coming weeks as January approaches.
Leicester season so far is one of the talking points of the Premier League and, currently sat in third, they will hope that they can keep this up until at least January when they will have the opportunity to strengthen.
They are 14/1 with Coral to achieve a top four finish and no doubt there are going to be a number of teams vying for their place come the end of the season, though we take a look at five players who may help to strengthen their case when the winter transfer window opens.
Already linked to Leicester, though the young Polish striker has an abundance of potential which he can realise at the Foxes. While he has only scored five times for Ajax this season, he can significantly boost this tally, with the service he receives from Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton, who have flourished this term.
Boss Claudio Ranieri may also want to consider Milik’s compatriot Polanski, who plies his trade at Bundesliga club Hoffenheim. The 29-year-old defensive midfielder would add even more steel and experience to the centre of their team, considerably reinforcing them. Tough and uncompromising, he is also highly under-rated which means Leicester could have themselves a bargain.
Empoli’s highly-rated centre back may be tempted to join compatriot Ranieri in the East Midlands, and at 25 is at the right age to develop into a top Premier League centre back. Unlikely to cost that much either, a swoop for Tonelli can add strength in depth as well as quality to Leicester’s defensive options.
The Sassuolo talent can play either left wing or up front and has been touted as one of a crop who could develop into being an heir to Italy’s strike force. Having recently scored the only goal in his team’s win over Juventus, from an fabulous free-kick, Sansone has a lot to offer Leicester.
His name just keeps doing the rounds. While he may be an obvious candidate, there is no doubting that he can score goals in the Premier League and would fit right in at Leicester, providing a perfect foil for the prolific Jamie Vardy in what would be an all-English frontline.
