Three Leicester City transfers are predicted to ensure their fight for survival in the Premier League

While Leicester City needs to think about selling and balancing its books to comply with the Profit and Sustainability Principles, it also needs to plan for signing contracts.

Their squad needs strengthening to help them fight for Premier League survival, especially if they are deprived of points. Recruiting wisely is a must this summer.




A signing before July and the start of the new financial year seems unlikely, but that doesn’t stop bookmakers from suggesting City focus on a few big name signings this summer. Here we analyze the three players William Hill is fighting for City and whether they will feature at the King Power Stadium in September.

Calvin Phillips

City are currently 5/1 favorites to sign the Manchester City and England midfielder, behind Everton and his former club Leeds. Phillips has had a difficult spell on loan at West Ham and it certainly seems that the 28-year-old needs a new permanent home to return to the form that has seen him establish himself as a regular for the Three Lions.

However, it seems unlikely that this house would be located at the King Power Stadium. In the position that Phillips would play in, at the base of the midfield, City already have Harry Winks and he is expected to be one of the first players in the squad in August.
