Three Leicester City Players Who Could Still Leave The Club

Plenty was expected from Leicester City last season after they won the Premier League back in 2015/ 16 but to the disappointment of the players and the fans, the Foxes finished the season in 12th place, thereby missing out on European football. Although they did have a memorable Champions League campaign, being the only English team to reach the quarterfinals of the competition.

With no European football this season, Leicester City will face a tough task in keeping their star players at the King Power this summer. Many of Leicester City’s big-name players have already been linked with a move away from the club and let’s take a look at three such players who could possibly leave the former Premier League champions this summer.

Ahmed Musa

The 24-year-old Nigerian international was brought in from CSKA Moscow last summer in the hope of strengthening the club’s attack as well giving competition to the likes of Jamie Vardy and Ulloa. But the young forward failed to make an impact in the limited amount of chances he got and was virtually outcasted after the departure of Claudio Ranieri. At just 24 years of age and a whole lot of potential, Ahmed Musa would definitely fancy a move to a club with Champions League before the start of the season.

Kasper Schmeichel

The 30-year-old Danish goalkeeper’s popularity hit the roof after winning the Premier League with Leicester in 2015/16. Kasper, who is the son of former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, played a crucial role in the Foxes’ title triumph with his heroic displays in several important games. The Danish goalie could find himself various suitors in Europe, having impressed in the Champions League last season. Manchester City could be one of the clubs that could target the big Dane, having been disappointed with the performances of Claudio Bravo.

Riyad Mahrez

The Algerian international became one of the most sought after midfielders in the world at the end of the 2015/16 Premier League season after helping the Foxes win their maiden Premier League title that season. But the 26-year-old decided to stay put at the club and help them in their Champions League quest despite interest from several big European clubs. However, Mahrez failed to replicate his PFA Player of the Year performance last season, ending the season with just 6 goals and 4 assists compared to the 18 goals and 10 assists he produced in the 2015/16 season.
