Leicester should go back to pursuing a deal to sign Jordan Lukaku

Leicester have proven themselves to be a strong force this season and one that could be problematic for the bigger teams to face.

The Foxes have really put together a strong squad and Claude Puel will be excited to see how far he can take this Leicester City team.

With a tight-knit defence and a potent attack, Leicester could prove to be a surprise package this season that tests the top six of the Premier League judging by their early form but with improvements still possible, they should turn to the January transfer window to make their chances this season even more promising.

Having been linked with him over the summer, Leicester should go back and try and conjure up a deal to sign Lazio’s Jordan Lukaku.

Lukaku, brother to Manchester United striker Romelu, is valued at £6.3 million on Transfermarkt.

The Belgian international like his brother is an extremely talented player and he would certainly be a big asset for Leicester, if they tried again with a deal to sign him.

Lazio reportedly rebuffed an offer for him from Everton over the summer but the Foxes should try again for a player who offers a great deal of versatility, as well as personal strengths such as pace and crossing ability.

Despite not playing yet this season, Leicester could possibly grab him on the cheap seeing as his contract runs out at the end of the season.

He made 44 appearances last season for the Italian side and was an important player playing at left-back and further forward as a left-midfielder. Leicester could do with the versatility and another player adding competition to the squad would be a great idea.
