Leicester City are reportedly eyeing up a transfer move for Rangers ace Filip Helander, according to Sportbladet.
As per the news outlet, the Sweden international has apparently been ‘hunted’ by the East Midlands club as well as Aston Villa and other teams in the Premier League.
Helander currently only has two years left on his deal in Scotland, meaning that the Gers may not get a higher price for the 27-year-old than if they were to look to sell him in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Leicester should sign Helander
Although the Scottish Premiership is clearly a lower level of football to that of the English top flight, Brendan Rodgers’ side should still look to try and sign Helander.
The big central defender stands at a mighty six-foot-three-inches tall, meaning that he should have no problems whatsoever in coping with both the physical and aerial demands of the division.
Should Leicester sign Helander?
Helander has also been as solid as a rock for Rangers so far in the 2020/21 SPFL season, winning no fewer than 6.8 of his duels per game while also averaging 2.1 clearances and 1.6 tackles, helping his team keep a mammoth 13 clean sheets in the process (Sofascore).
Leicestershire Live quote Steven Gerrard as saying that he is ‘outstanding’ positionally back in January, which is very high praise, and only adds to the reasons that the Foxes should go out and buy him.
