The Premier League has been dubbed the most competitive league in Europe for so long, with an array of talent and a constant battle for the title of champions. The top four has always been debated strongly amongst fans and pundits, particularly with the rise of Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, and most recently, Wolverhampton Wanderers.
However, in 2016, Leicester City accomplished the most shocking achievement football has ever seen, winning the Premier League after only being promoted in two years prior.
Since then, the Foxes have not quite to etched their name in the Premier League’s list of elite, after controversially parting ways with Claudio Ranieri and losing Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante to more competitive clubs.
This season, although, has seen Brenden Rodgers’ side fight for a place in the Champions League next season, being nine points ahead of fifth-place Manchester United with only nine matches remaining.
The question posed for Rodgers and Leicester now is whether they can maintain this form for the coming seasons and become a permanent name among the Premier League’s top four.
With United being very active in the transfer market at the moment and Jose Mourinho having his first summer transfer window in charge of Spurs, the Foxes will face fierce competition to maintain a Champions League spot – perhaps prompting them to invest in transfers of their own to do so.
Here, we look at the potential transfer options for Leicester going forward into the 2020/21 season and whether they can compete regularly in Europe’s most elite competition.
