However, they also made a questionable call in selling Andrej Kramaric, which judging by the striker’s form for Hoffenheim this season, appears to be coming back to bite them.
At the moment he’d represent the perfect man to take some of the heat off Jamie Vardy, but unfortunately for the Foxes, he no longer belongs to the Midlands outfit.
After an article surfaced on The Leicester Mercury, the King Power faithful reflected upon what now looks like an awful call to get rid of him.
One fan went as far as describing it as potentially one of the biggest mistakes in Leicester’s history whilst another claimed he’d take the Croatian back tomorrow.
A further supporter suggested the 27-year-old should now be playing up front with Vardy. Another member of the Leicester fanbase labelled him better than Iheanacho.
Kramaric has been in fine goalscoring form in Germany this season, scoring 22 times in all competitions at club level. That included five strikes in the Champions League. Last term he found the net on 13 occasions in the Bundesliga.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
Looked a class player. Never really given a real chance. Big mistake. Not surprised he is banging in the goals

Potentially the biggest mistake the club has ever made.

I was so excited when he signed for us, never really given a chance but you could see from the buy parts he did play that there was a player in there, I would take him back tomorrow

Big mistake . I live in Germany and so see a lot of Bundesliga . Very good player in a well-coached side , really developed well. Can play up top or more often on the left like Harvey Barnes . There’s slot of good value players in the league who could easily enhance the squad .

Should be playing up front with Vardy. Never given a proper run. Mistake but then again, we all make them so no point looking back with regret. Keep moving forwards. Who will we have up front in August…?!
