Addition of £16.2m-rated ace could spell seriously bad news for these Leicester stars

Leicester City supporters in the Transfer Tavern are eagerly anticipating the 2018/19 Premier League season, what with their side seeking to build upon their solid ninth place finish last time round.

The Foxes made a sluggish start to the campaign which ultimately cost Craig Shakespeare his job, paving the way for Claude Puel to make a return to English football a few months on from being sacked as Southampton manager. And the Frenchman did a fine job in leading the Midlands outfit away from the bottom three and to a top half finish, although the pressure was building on the 46-year-old given his side won just five of their 18 Premier League games in 2018.

Nonetheless, there are many expectant and indeed optimistic Leicester fans up and down the country ahead of the new season, and they are likely to be interested by recent reports linking Yannick Bolasie with a move to the King Power Stadium.

The 29-year-old Everton winger only returned from a year out with injury back in December but was then unable to produce the goods for the Toffees in the second half of the campaign, netting just once in 16 Premier League appearances.

His future at Goodison Park appears uncertain heading into the final few weeks of the window to the point that the Foxes are reportedly keen on the DR Congo international, and were Puel’s men to indeed land the £16.2 million-rated ace (as per Transfermarkt), it could spell bad news for these TWO Leicester stars…
