Despite Leicester city spending the last few seasons slowly but steadily improving their squad, the Foxes have struggled to bring in new faces this season. This was despite reports that Brendan Rodgers wanted to freshen up his squad with several additions, but so far the club have only signed backup goalkeeper Alex Smithies on a free transfer. It is despite that they leave Kasper Schmeichel leave the club to sign for OGC Pleasant this summer, although he may not be the only one to leave.
Several Leicester City players have been linked with departures including Wesley Fofana, Youri Tielemans and a few others, although so far no move has materialized.

Rodgers further added that his only goal is to improve his current squad on the training ground and prepare them to perform consistently in matches.
“I don’t know at this stage. There have been a few offers for some of the players, but nowhere near the valuation the club would like to sell. None of them are for sale. That’s the reality, though, I know how the game works and how the business works, but right now there are a few weeks left in the window,” Rodgers told Sky Sports.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen, but my only focus is the players we have here and getting them back to that level of confidence and turning 60 minutes of good work into 90 minutes of good work and good results.”

This worries many fans, but Rodgers admitted things have been tough for him and the team, especially compared to how the Foxes have performed in the past.

Where the club have been for the past few years, they’ve challenged the top four and won trophies, and of course the fans are watching the club over the summer. and they get excited to have new recruits and see them evolve and see us grow. We couldn’t do that. So the atmosphere, it’s difficult, and I totally understand that. from the supporters because they want to see us push continuously.
“Obviously the players themselves would like to have this competition in the team, but at the moment my focus is just on the players who are here and the players who are here and fully committed to helping the team get results. ,” he added.
