Potential consequences of signing Elmas in the summer

Potential consequences of signing Elmas in the summer

Leicester City failed to get off to a positive start under Brendan Rodgers against Watford at Vicarage Road yesterday, despite looking the better side for most of the match.

The Foxes will need to seek immediate improvements if they are to stand any chance of securing a European spot in the current campaign, with a number of sides all fighting for a limited amount of places.

It looks as if Brendan Rodgers already has his sights set on a big swoop at the King Power Stadium, as according to TEAMtalk, Leicester City are set to join the battle for Fenerbahce’s Elif Elmas.

Indeed, the youngster has been hugely impressive this season and has all the ingredients to become a star in the future, so bringing him to the King Power Stadium would be a smart move.

So, here are the potential consequences of signing Elif Elmas in the summer…

RODGERS MAKES HUGE STATEMENT

Brendan Rodgers will be looking to hit the ground running in the summer transfer window after taking charge at the King Power Stadium recently, with Elmas possibly being one of many signings.

Indeed, the Northern Irishman would make a huge statement by securing the services of the 19-year-old as he has all the potential to become a future star, and the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham have also shown an interest, so they’d pip two of England’s biggest sides to the signing.

Of course, securing Elmas would certainly show that the Foxes mean business on the transfer front.

TIELEMANS STAYS AT MONACO

Youri Tielemans has been hugely impressive since joining on loan in the January transfer window, having produced two assists in four Premier League appearances for the Foxes.

But, Elmas operates in exactly the same position as Tielemans and Rodgers would reportedly (as per TEAMtalk) need to spend £30 million to sign the Macedonian international, so Tielemans may be forced to stay at parent club AS Monaco if Elmas joins as it’s unlikely that Leicester will splash out on two players in the same position.
