I was talking about Iheancho more specifically but was Vardy not out for longer than that?

Actually he was injured for the norwich game and half the second west ham game. Also came on late for the second aston villa game. So we only lost points in the norwich game in the 5 he missed minutes in. I remember nacho actually looked pretty good in the norwich game as well, had a banger ruled out cos the ball brushed his arm.

I think he is, he came on in the first friendly against Birmingham and hardly had to break into a sweat, make one excellent tackle didn't have much to do but brought the ball forward excellently and some good forward passes. Just what we want a CB to do, he looks really composed on the ball and has shown he can finish something else our CB's have lacked with Evans and Soyuncu missing some great chances.

Did you see Benkovic's second goal for Bristol after the restart. We've had him for 2 seasons now without playing him. 

If he's not going to play him now then he never will get a better chance and may as well let him go. Something doesn't add up with Brendan and Benkovic.

Sounds like the Benkovic I remember well. He scored a few for us in his time here, seem to remember him saying he played as a CF for a large part of his youth career so makes sense.

 

Rodgers seemed to really rate him when he was up here and play him whenever he was available so I don't think there is a problem per say between him and Benkovic I think it may be the latter not wanting to gamble on his fitness and waiting until he is truly fit and can perhaps do himself justice.

I remember watching that game actually. Like @messerschmitt said it's all about opinions and most on here will have seen more of Iheanacho than I have but I struggle based on what I have saw to be convinced he's ever going to be good enough to be the number 1 striker at Leicester, Rodgers lack of faith in him seems to say as much also.

To answer the question in this thread I would like and realistically I would hope we could get/sign: Edouard, Brooks and Tarkowski in the next 2 weeks. Well I am hoping but I think we need bodies in their positions: striker, winger and centre back.   Our squad with current injuries looks painfully short going into this season opening games this weekend.

Jordan Lukaku targets Premier League move as Romelu's younger brother aims to nail down left-back spot in Belgium squad for the Euros... and Lazio could allow him to leave for £5m

 

worth a 5m punt

 

Continue the Belgium theme

We were apparently close to getting him a couple of years ago

 

Only made 13 appearances this season for Lazio, 1 start, all as a left mid/left wing back

 

If we are going for the 3 at the back could be a decent cheap cover for Castagne that would allow Thomas to go out on loan

It's a no for me, pretty average anytime I've seen him. If he is to be the Chilwell replacement then that's a serious downgrade.

Must admit it’s frustrating there are no signs of the recruitment, I think we may be trying to get some top players who are keeping there options open at the minute. Hopefully things start moving soon.

I've just read Marcus Edwards has a €15m release clause and there's murmurs Villa have bid €10m.

 

Surely that would be a perfect alternative to Trincao for us?

...just checked him out on Youtube!!!

Exciting player, very much like Mahrez, very greedy wants to beat every player who comes near him as if he has something to prove. Shoots for the near post over and over again and his reluctance to shoot across the keeper is either down to lack of technique or intelligence.

  He looks so much better when he is playing someone in, he pulls people out of their position, he just tends not to see the options he has created. 

  Would be worth going to watch, he would certainly get you off your seat/sofa.

Hmmmm that means Adam Ounas and/or Lozano could be available. Both would be worth taking a chance on. Ounas is an Algerian left footed right winger, it's destiny. He's quick as well, unlike Ghezzal.

MAKE IT HAPPEN RUDDERS

Apparently PSG want Julian Draxler gone, and the only team I saw interested were Leeds. He can play as a winger can’t he, even though his preferred position is a 10? 

He has mostly played as a left winger in his career, he can also play as a 10

The Althetic are reporting Everton spending is Finished. 

 

So where can zaha go ? 

Leicester or possibly spurs is the only option for him in the PL. 

 

wonder if this will be our surprise signing late in the window

That's one hell of a conclusion to jump to but I admire your optimism! :P

The more I think about it and the more I look at our current squad and who we’ve seen so far I think that we should focus on a striker and centre back as priority. It seems that Brendan wants to play three at the back and so in order to get the most out of the better players we have those seem like the fundamental gaps.

 

If we go three at the back to get the most out of Maddison we need to play him in the 10 not wide left, which means we should play two up top and therefore need a partner for Vardy. I would really love that to be Edouard. 
 

 

If we do revert to a back 4 then I worry lack of natural width on the left will be an issue.

Hope so. He’s had a cracking preseason too.

Godin going to Cagliari, don’t care about his age id love him here 

IMO the best CB of the last 10-15 years. Shame it didn't work out at Inter, I was dead keen for him to come to the prem after Atletico!

The game against us at the KP will live long in my memory, a fantastic performance IMO, plays the ball out of defense brilliantly which people seem to not expect due to him playing for atletico previously.

I've really tried being patient but I just really want us to announce a signing we can get excited about.... The excitement around Castagne was dampened by the question Mark's of where he fits into the side, not to mention the fact that most of us didn't know much about him. 

 

...Just someone we can get us buzzing.

We must have been loosely linked with about 50 players over the summer..

LCFC ought to have a list for the Jan window, that then gets put into action in the summer window.

It has been a shambles... First game is 3 days away and we have a CM filling in at CB, Then a CM that it looked like we were getting rid of starting in his place..
mid we don’t pick up 7 points from the first 4 games, we are in a relegation battle for sure..
