Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has not given up hope of singing a new creative player to boost the Foxes’ European ambitions. The Northern Irishman made it clear at the end of last season that signing a playmaker was key in the summer transfer window in order to again challenge for the European places. Leicester finished 5th in last season’s Premier League, securing a Europa League spot but narrowly missing out on Champions League football on the final day of the campaign. The Foxes only fresh face so far this window is Belgium full back Timothy Castagne, yet despite the lack of transfer activity at the King Power Stadium, Rodgers isn’t giving up the ghost regarding potential new arrivals. The Leicester boss revealed that despite weaknesses that have emerged at the back regarding defensive injuries, a new creative talent is still the club’s top priority.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has not given up hope of singing a new creative player to boost the Foxes’ European ambitions.

The Northern Irishman made it clear at the end of last season that signing a playmaker was key in the summer transfer window in order to again challenge for the European places.

Leicester finished 5th in last season’s Premier League, securing a Europa League spot but narrowly missing out on Champions League football on the final day of the campaign.

The Foxes only fresh face so far this window is Belgium full back Timothy Castagne, yet despite the lack of transfer activity at the King Power Stadium, Rodgers isn’t giving up the ghost regarding potential new arrivals.

The Leicester boss revealed that despite weaknesses that have emerged at the back regarding defensive injuries, a new creative talent is still the club’s top priority.

The latest gossip coming from the King Power Stadium is that Leicester are close to signing Roma winger Cengiz Under on a loan deal with an obligation to buy.

Under is said to be available for £24.6 million on a permanent deal after the initial loan spell ends at the end of the campaign.

This one’s close, but not quite finished yet – Brendan Rodgers and the Foxes are confident that they can get the deal over the line.
