Champions League-bound Leicester City poised for a busy summer

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is ready for a thorough summer with the team poised to return to the Champions League having competed in the Europa League this season.

The club has always been known to sell some of its best players for some good fees over the years with the team parting ways Ben Chilwell last summer, the summer before Harry Maguire and Riyad Mahrez in 2018.

“You always plan and prepare to keep your players, but you always have to have that pipeline for the 'what if?' scenario. For this summer, as I sit here, I can't see us losing anyone. But of course, I may have said that about Ben (Chilwell) and he's gone.

“But certainly we don't plan to lose anyone. I think as well if there's a summer where you maybe wouldn't be looking to lose your players, it would be this summer. Our idea is to get to the end of the season, finish as strong as we can, hopefully it will be a great season, keep the players we have, and add to it as opposed to moving any on.

"That would be the message as for now. There will be a level of spending. We've already been speaking about that over the past few months. We want to continue improving. It won't be the same as pre-Covid. But there will be an investment. We want to strengthen the squad and I am pretty hopeful we'll be able to do that," Rodgers said last week.

The Foxes are currently placed third on the table with 56 points; just a point below second-placed Manchester United.
