Marega would kickstart Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City era

The arrival of promising Brendan Rodgers has opened new doors for Leicester City, waving away the doom and gloom of their previous employer.

It has been a sad old season for Leicester City fans who, week after week, watched their title-winning side amble, limp and collapse into absolute mediocrity under former boss Claude Puel.

The Frenchman’s painfully negative football was made even worse by the fact that he had one of the best sides on paper outside the top six – littered with quality young talent such as Ben Chilwell, Demarai Gray, Harvey Barnes, Hamza Choudhury, and James Maddison.

All complimented by the already established players in Jamie Vardy, Harry Maguire, Ricardo Pereira and co.

However, as good as this all is on paper – their extremely poor run of form in 2019 has made it increasingly obvious that they are in dire need of a booster.

A Moussa Marega shaped booster, according to Portuguese outlet Correio da Manha.

Porto’s star forward has been in scintillating form this season scoring 17 goals in 34 games in all competitions, including six in the Champions League.

As far as we are aware, Marega is an incredibly physical player gifted with pace, and though his technical game is a little questionable at times, he more than makes up for it with his ability in front of goal.

Of course, it is always going to be difficult to shake Jamie Vardy from the starting line-up, which is why Marega’s preferred role as a second striker is absolutely ideal.

The 27-year-old would make a far better alternative than current options Kelechi Iheanacho and Shinji Okazaki – that much we are sure of.

Leicester fans, do you think signing another striker should be your priority, and is Marega that man? Let us know in the comments below…
