Leicester City have been completely transformed under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers as they continue to edge closer towards securing a European spot.
The Foxes put in arguably their best performance yet under the Northern Irishman last time out against Huddersfield Town, as goals from Youri Tielemans, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy sealed the win.
However, it appears as if Rodgers is already looking to strengthen his side in the summer, as according to Sportski Zurnal (via Leicester Mercury), Leicester City have joined the race for Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Fulham have been relegated to the Championship already after a poor first season back in the Premier League, and one of the players who belongs in the top-flight is the Serbian international.
Mitrovic, who is valued at £22.5 million (by Transfermarkt), has been impressive in the Premier League this season, despite his lack of service and support at times, as he’s produced 10 goals and two assists for the Cottagers. But, in a side like Leicester’s he would find himself being presented with a lot more chances, which would inevitably increase his tally.
Of course, pushing Jamie Vardy out of the starting lineup at the King Power Stadium isn’t an option as he’s been simply sensational once again this season. Instead, Rodgers should look to deploy the Serbian alongside Vardy at the pinnacle of the attack, as the mixture of pace and strength could work perfectly.
Indeed, the likes of Marc Albrighton, Demarai Gray and James Maddison are very accomplished when it comes to crossing the ball, so the Fulham forward would thrive off their service in the final third.
Leicester City fans, do you think Mitrovic would be the perfect partner for Jamie Vardy? Join the discussion by commenting down below!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
