Leicester banked £80m lump sum from Manchester United for Harry Maguire - and Brendan Rodgers is preparing to spend it

Recommended Posts

Don't get the CB requirement, why not have Benko on standby with Big Wes? We need a talented winger and still need an effective striking option.

 

Let's not also ignore the 2 season turnover for star players. Madders will fit that bill come the summer and no point ignoring it. Hes ambitious, we are his third perm club since a boy and still only 22. Hes moving up the ladder and we are the run before the big one. Would be a huge creative loss to the team and that alone needs addressing once we reach it.

Winger or striker is a more pressing concern.

Exactly this! Morgan will need replacing in the summer but not before then. 

 

Our current team team with a 10 goals / assists winger in it reaches the Champions League it’s as simple as that. We’ve got the right manager in charge, we’ve got the money, so let’s back him!

I’ve seen a lot of fans desperate for a new winger, but of the current 4, but who should be at expense for a new signing? Surely we can’t keep 5 wingers happy? 

 

Striker one is difficult too, how do you get someone who is a good goalscorer and is happy to be second choice behind Vardy, any ideas who we could go for?

Gray and Albrighton don't contribute enough goals or assists.

 

We need a winger who will score 10-15 a season.

Agreed. We need a Mahrez to link with Vardy and I think we can get top 4!

Wouldn't mind Callum Wilson as backup striker. Not sure he'd want that role though. Good straight swap for Vardes. 

 

Winger is tough. I can't think of any that stand out at the minute for any club.

As Percy is so close to the club there’s either truth to it or it’s being published for a reason. 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if we are already negotiating for some players and are using the “oh we can’t pay more than 20m because we need to spend 50m to replace Maguire” excuse even if it’s untrue. 

Yeah, a bit of naughty lying sounds about right.

I like Wilson but isn’t he pretty injury prone?

I’d like to see us in for a great young Championship striker or even League 1

If we're buying a cheap backup striker we could do worse than Karlan Grant as a stop gap measure. Managed to score multiple goals for Huddersfield last season which is an achievement in itself, and they were decent ones as well.

The only player that gets into our 11 at the moment is a winger/wide man (and that could be the different between top 4 and 6/7/8 place)... I think we can survive the season with Vardy as our striker and the sort of caliber we will be looking at wont play second fiddle.

 

If vardy had a knock for a game or 2 Perez can play as a striker and is just as hardworking but obviously not as good... id rather go all out of a winger than split the money between winger and striker in January.. on my head be it lol

Domenico Berradi of Sassuolo has 6 goals and 2 assists in 9 games this season, one of the best wingers currently in Seria A and plays wide right. Worth a look?

Percy is usually spot on. If rodgers is after a striker and cb, then he must think that 3-5-2 is a possible formation that will flourish with the players available. We could still fit Barnes, albrighton, gray and perez into that system. 

 

Personally I would prefer to go big on a winger but if we could add another class cb to compliment cags and Evans and a goalscorer, we would be really hard to break down and still have enough of a threat with vardy.

he's also 27, which isn't a bad age but he's also a pace striker with a history of injuries

Do we know how much of that £80m lump sum went to Hull? 

Hull received 15% and Maguire had a 5% loyalty bonus so that 80 million is a bit of an exaggeration.

I'm surprised at Percy not pointing this out,he doesn't usually go for sensationalist journalism.

Winger is our only priority really, and even then it has to be someone who is going to make a difference now. Not someone who we hope will come good in the future.

 

We need a striker and I think it would be a good idea to get someone in if available, someone who will be able to use the rest of the season to adapt ahead of playing a bigger part next season. At some point we will need to rest Vardy, or sub him.
