How might Leicester look after signing Tielemans and Perez?

Leicester have had a busy few days, breaking their transfer record twice to bring both Ayoze Perez and Youri Tielemans to the King Power.

The Foxes confirmed the addition of Perez for a fee of £30m last week before the Belgian arrived on a permanent transfer for £40m.

But now the two deals have gone through, how could Leicester shape up?

Plan A

The first plan they could put into action would be to utilise Perez on the right with Tielemans playing directly behind Jamie Vardy.

Towards the back end of last season Brendan Rodgers started to field James Maddison on the left-hand side, a position of the pitch he caused Ainsley Maitland-Niles countless problems in when Leicester beat Arsenal.

He was particularly impressive as he was able to get the young Gunners man sent off in the process.

The former Norwich star and Tielemans struck a particularly good partnership in that game with the pair even combining for a goal.

Therefore, it could be a similar sort of formula that Rodgers utilises again in 2019/20.

Perez played as a right inside forward during the back end of last season, scoring six in five games as he and Miguel Almiron played just behind Salomon Rondon. That system could potentially be replicated behind Vardy.

Plan B

The second plan in order to cram all of their creative players into the same side would be to move Tielemans slightly further back.

He started his time with Leicester playing as a central midfielder, as opposed to a No.10, which could then allow Maddison to play in a role he was particularly impressive in throughout most of the last season.

He played 100 key passes throughout the previous term so it may seem foolish to upset the rhythm he developed there.

As a result, Harvey Barnes could come in at the expense of Hamza Choudhury, giving them a more direct option on the right wing than Maddison would perhaps offer.

Considering the number of options Leicester have in central areas, this formation again sees Perez shifted out to the right-hand side.

If you take into account the threat Maddison and Tielemans offer in the middle, it’s difficult to see how their new Spanish signing would fit in unless it’s in a wider role.
