Brendan Rodgers spent some time discussing Leicester City’s plans for the upcoming summer transfer window in his pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s Premier League clash with Everton this Wednesday.
The Foxes are set to take on the Toffees this Wednesday in England’s top flight. Leicester will go into Wednesday’s game off the back of a rather unimpressive run of form, having won just one of their last seven Premier League games. It may be fair to say that the Foxes have struggled in attack lately, with Leicester failing to score in four of their last six Premier League fixtures, while Rodgers revealed that his side are looking to strengthen their attacking options in this summer’s transfer window.
As per Leicestershire Live, the Northern Irish coach said of potential attacking additions: “It’s an area we’ve been looking at. Our objective was to score more goals and that’s what we’ve done. Up to now, the players have surpassed that. We want more creative options and different options. The players have been tremendous. Year on year you want to keep improving and that will be something we will look at in the summer.”
Do Leicester City need to strengthen in attack this summer?
Only Liverpool and Manchester City have scored more Premier League goals than Leicester City this season and with that in mind, it may be fair to say that the Foxes are already strong in attack.
However, Jamie Vardy has scored 19 Premier League goals this term, which is just under a third of Leicester’s 59 goals in England’s top-flight this season. Additionally, Vardy is the only Leicester player to get their Premier League goals tally into double figures for the 2019/20 campaign. With that in mind, becoming less reliant on Vardy for goals and adding another proven goalscorer to their ranks could be a wise decision for Leicester and could help them to score even more goals next season.
