Former Leicester City striker Brian Deane has told Football FanCast in an exclusive interview that Youri Tielemans, Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison would walk into most clubs.
This comes after reports claimed that the Foxes are closing in on a deal to sign Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare to bolster Brendan Rodgers’ options in the middle of the park even further.
The Northern Irishman’s current crop of midfielders have been excellent this season, with Tielemans impressing in particular.
It was, of course, his wonder strike that led Leicester to their first ever FA Cup triumph, and Deane believes the 24-year-old and a couple of his team-mates would get into most teams in world football.
Speaking exclusively to FFC about Leicester’s midfield options amid the Soumare news, Deane said:
“Those three players walk into most clubs. Tielemans is a Belgian international, Ndidi is a Nigerian international, very good player, you know, plays that defensive midfield role – a lot more people talking about him.
“And Maddison’s a young player, a young English player who has shown a lot of quality at times, so they have a good mix there. They’ve all got legs and all very good on the ball technically.
As well as Soumare, according to the MailOnline, Leicester could also bring in Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard and Southampton left-back Ryan Bertrand, so Rodgers is certainly not resting on his laurels after a successful season at the King Power.
