Leicester City will look to the new season with a sense of renewed energy and purpose after a shocking start to their Premier League title defence saw legendary manager Claudio Ranieri removed from his role and replaced with assistant Craig Shakespeare.
The new boss guided the Foxes to a mid table finish and earned himself the job on a full time basis, and will use this window to make his own mark on the squad.
Foxes fans in the Tavern are hoping their side will improve upon their pathetic title defence this year, and discussion around the jukebox has revolved around who Shakespeare will bring in this summer.

One thoughtful fan suggested to our barman that he believes his side should make a move for Adama Traore, with the pacey Middlesbrough winger possibly to leave the club following their relegation to the Championship.
Traore graduated Barcelona’s La Masia academy before joining Aston Villa, and is an unbelievably skilled player.
The winger’s only criticism is his end product, which needs a lot of work before he can truly excel into one of the strongest wingers in the English game.
At the age of 21 the young Spaniard still has plenty of time to work on this element of his game, and wasn’t Cristiano Ronaldo once criticised for the same thing?
Traore would be a coup for Leicester with several big clubs likely circling, but our Leicester fan at the bar could be onto a winner if his manager heeds his call to bring the player to the King Power Stadium.
Thoughts, Leicester fans? Let us know below!
