Rodgers must look at bringing Ryan Christie to Leicester

Leicester City looked extremely impressive last time out against Brighton and Hove Albion as they secured a 2-1 victory at the King Power Stadium with Brendan Rodgers watching on. 

The Foxes will be desperate to enjoy a successful time of things under Rodgers after failing to ensure consistency at times during Claude Puel’s reign, with a European spot still in their sights.

Interestingly, it appears as if Midlands club have their sights on possibly securing a number of Celtic players in the summer, as according to The Times, Rodgers could raid his old club for Callum McGregor and James Forrest.

Indeed, securing the services of Forrest wouldn’t exactly be the most sensible of moves as the Foxes already have Demarai Gray, Marc Albrighton and Rachid Ghezzal. And, McGregor hasn’t exactly been able to live up to expectations in recent times at Parkhead, so the Premier League club would be better off looking at a different man.

One player who may be of interest to Rodgers is Ryan Christie, who is valued at £1.13 million (by Transfermarkt).

Christie has established himself as one of the shining lights in all competitions for the Hoops this season, having produced an impressive 10 goals and nine assists. The 24-year-old still has his best years ahead of him and he has Brendan Rodgers to thank for his rise to stardom in the current campaign.

So, with James Maddison currently operating in an attacking midfield role by himself, it would make sense for Rodgers to bring in another player who can provide goals and assists on a regular basis in the form of Christie. And, Rodgers will already know that he can get the best out of him in the Midlands, so it’s a no-brainer.

What do you think Leicester City fans?
