Leicester City transfer news and rumors Summer Transfer window 2022

Leicester City are not one of the teams to complete any deals yet, but that hasn't stopped them being linked with a number of different players. Brendan Rodgers has been open about the need for a 'refresh' of his squad this summer with some new faces expected before the start of the season.

There could, of course, also be exits, including midfielder Youri Tielemans. The Belgian has recently spoken about his future at the club, admitting that he could be on the move this summer. He has just one year remaining on his current deal at the King Power Stadium.


For the latest on that and any potential incomings as well as the latest on preparations for the new season, check out our blog below for updates.


KEY EVENTS

What future holds for Maddison

And more importantly, how might he respond?

After two games, England have scored one goal and been criticized for a lack of creativity. Maddison could have provided that, but instead, he is on holiday.

He would be forgiven for being deflated by the whole thing, but there is evidence that won't be the case.

Here, we look at what the England snub could mean for the City midfielder.


Man United and Chelsea join midfielder race

Leicester City have been given a transfer boost in their hopes of signing Ibrahim Sangare this summer, although they could now face more competition for his signature.

City have been credited with an interest in the 24-year-old midfielder, with reports claiming that they could be lining up a £30 million bid in order to tempt PSV Eindhoven to sell. Sangare was one of the standout performers for the Dutch side in the Europa Conference League quarter final against City in the season just gone.

The club could face competition from their Premier League rivals Chelsea, with the Blues said to be ‘tracking’ the midfielder.

 

Tarkowski to undergo Everton medical

The centre-back is set to undergo a medical at Goodison Park ahead of a transfer, according to the Athletic.

He is available on a free transfer after the expiry of his contract at Burnley this summer. City have made moves for the defender in previous transfer windows, but have since moved on to other targets.


Tielemans latest

Youri Tielemans is a name that will probably be mentioned a lot around the summer transfer window as speculation continues around the midfielder's future.

The Belgian will have just 12 months remaining on his Leicester City contract during the summer transfer window, with no deal agreed to see him sign a new one. It means that City face the real possibility of losing him for nothing next summer.

It means that City could look to see Tielemans in the current window in order to recoup some of the fee that they paid for him when he signed permanently from Monaco in the summer of 2019. The transfer came after he impressed during a six month loan spell at the King Power Stadium.

Youngsters could step up

Leicester City are enjoying a period of success in turning academy players into first-team stars, with Harvey Barnes, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Hamza Choudhury and Luke Thomas all in Brendan Rodgers’ senior squad this season.

But despite a very promising set of youngsters hoping to follow in their footsteps, City were, surprisingly, one of four teams not to hand a single Premier League appearance to a teenager this season, along with Chelsea, Newcastle, and Burnley. Some featured in the FA Cup but at the end of the season when there was little riding on the games, Rodgers chose to stick with his senior players rather than give the up-and-comers a chance.

But pre-season is around the corner and that provides an opportunity for a few youngsters to be given a run-out in lower-pressure fixtures. It will also give Rodgers a chance to see which of those prospects fit in best in the first-team environment. Below, we’ve listed eight teenagers that fans will hope to get a glimpse of during the pre-season fixtures.

 

Leicester City enquire about young defender Brendan Rodgers has already seen up close twice

Leicester City have "asked for information" on Rennes left-back Adrien Truffert ahead of a potential transfer.

The 20-year-old played against City in both legs of the Europa Conference League round of 16 clash back in March as Leicester won 3-2 on aggregate and advanced to the quarter-finals, before eventually losing to Roma in the last four.

Six players Leicester City regret letting slip through their fingers too soon

Leicester City are well known for the productivity of their academy over recent years.

The likes of Harvey Barnes, Hamza Choudhury and Ben Chilwell have progressed through to the first team squad, with Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Luke Thomas two of the latest names to earn a place in Brendan Rodgers' set-up.


14 transfer deals that could define new era at Leicester City

Five transfer windows have passed since Leicester City prepared for life under a new head of recruitment and this summer is the first window since Lee Congerton departed to take over as sporting director at Italian side Atalanta.

Congerton, formerly of Sunderland and Celtic, joined the club three months after Brendan Rodgers' appointment at the King Power Stadium and brought 13 players to the club during his reign in the Midlands. From important members of Rodgers' squad such as James Justin, Youri Tielemans, Wesley Fofana and Timothy Castgane, to strugglers such as Cengiz Under, Ryan Bennett, Ryan Bertrand and Ayoze Perez.

Hoping for similar deals such as Fofana with Congerton and Riyad Mahrez with Steve Walsh, Martyn Glover is set leave Premier League rivals Southampton to take the reins as head of senior recruitment at City, though no confirmation has been announced. The former PE teacher joined the Saints from Everton in 2019 as their head of scouting and recruitment. However, Glover was forced to work within a sell-to-buy model at St Mary's.

Exit 'not out of the question' for Tielemans

Youri Tielemans has been discussing his future at a press conference this afternoon, and it sounds like he is leaning towards an exit from City, saying he has to "listen to other opportunities" and think about his career.


Porto's Vieira linked

A new name has emerged, with Portuguese paper Record reporting that City are keeping an eye on Porto attacking midfielder Fabio Vieira.

He scored seven goals and provided 16 assists this season as Porto won the double. While he played centrally for the most part this season, he did come through the ranks as a right winger.
