Ending just under a European spot within the EPL last season must not have sat well with Leicester City and Brendan Rodgers, so it’s definitely frustrating that he(Rodgers) hasn’t found the additions needed to higher his team.
Leicester haven’t signed any players this summer, unlike all the opposite English top flight contenders. While he wants latest entrants, Rodgers can also be targeting exits from his side to afford some expenses.
Reports suggest that Frenchman Boubakary Soumare is certainly one of the Leicester squad members with whom Brendan will willingly part.
That doesn’t mean he’ll lose out though, and L’Equipe’s reveals that Leicester City rejected Monaco’s 15 million pound bid for the 23-year old because they’re targeting at the very least the quantity with which they acquired him last summer (23 million).
Soumare has only played a few games since February and it’s clear that Leicester can do without him. A transfer will help each the club and him.
Reports reveal that Monaco have offered one other deal, but this remains to be unverified and undisclosed, so it’s not clear whether their second offer is anywhere near Rodgers’ demand.
Should they successfully release Soumare, Leicester can have some money to bid for at the very least one player and end their transfer woes this summer.
It’s highly unlikely that their exact quoted price will probably be fulfilled, though, so Brendan’s side might need to retain Soumare or accept a lower sum and make do with it.
