Leicester could lose Maresca’s “great” star for way below his market value

It looked at one stage as though Leicester City were going to run away with the Championship title to earn promotion and silverware with ease, but recent results have seen them pegged back and Ipswich level things up at the top of the table. Now, the newly-promoted side are only behind the Foxes on goal difference.

In Enzo Maresca’s most difficult period in charge yet, the international break came at the perfect time, with the former Manchester City assistant now tasked with avoiding a third consecutive defeat when his side return to action against Watford.

 

As the January window approaches, Maresca may even have his eye on reinforcements to bolster Leicester’s promotion chances even further. The Italian will also have to ensure that his current stars stay put, however, in order to keep them on track for the Premier League. That task doesn’t look set to be a simple one, though, given recent news about one specific forward.

Leicester City transfer news
The Foxes did well to keep hold of many of their key players during the summer window, only bidding farewell to James Maddison, Youri Tielemans and Harvey Barnes when it comes to big names. Whilst those three left, the likes of Jamie Vardy, Ricardo Pereira and Wilfred Ndidi stayed put to give Leicester one of the most impressive Championship sides on paper in recent memory.

Facing the task of keeping players again in January, this time they might not be so fortunate. According to 90Min, Fenerbahce have identified Kelechi Iheanacho as their number one target to replace Michy Batshuayi in the winter window.
