If Leicester win the league, or should I ay when, there will suddenly be a whole new world of players available to the midlands club. Many of whom may have never previously heard of the Foxes, but awash with champions league funding and a premier league title under their belt, players will surely take notice of this new potential suitor.
One of these men is Fiorentina’s creative star Josip Ilicic. Playing in behind the striker or on the wing, it is thought that the Slovenian could pair up well to feed Jamie Vardy next year. With 12 goals in 25 this year he poses a goal threat too, and at 6’3 he has an unorthodox frame for a man in his position.
Reports state £11 million as a ball-park figure to prise him from Serie A,but with the new TV deal that would be affordable for a bottom place side, let alone the winner. Not just will Leicester fans see a phenomenal team, but now some star talent as well.
Not that Mahrez isn’t doing that already.
