Leicester City must repeat the trick they successfully used in 2018 to sign Ricardo Pereira with a move for Robin Gossens.
In recent days, the Foxes have been linked with switching to Atalanta’s full-back, with Fabrizio Romano revealing that he is their “Basic option” if John Rudkin chooses to sign left-back this summer.
Should Leicester sign Gossens?
Absolutely, he is perfect.
No, they have to look elsewhere.
However, the East Midlands are reportedly facing competition for the German international, valued at £ 31.5 million, with Manchester City also linked in the past.
As current Leicester defender Pereira was also linked to Premier League rival Tottenham Hotspur before moving to King Power Stadium nearly three years ago, the Foxes invaded, securing a deal earlier.
The Portuguese international, who was signed by FC Porto, was declared a player of Leicester City at 19you May 2018 – just six days after the final competition in the Premier League for the season.
Although he did not officially sign his contract with Foxes until next month due to international permission, the early deal allowed the East Midlands to steal a march from their rivals and sign Pereira.
Since then, he has certainly been welcome at King Power Stadium, making 86 appearances for the club and winning the Player of the Season award in his debut campaign.
So, as Gossens is interested in a number of clubs across Europe, it would certainly be useful for Leicester to make a deal relatively early, especially with the UEFA European Championship, which will take place this summer, an event that can make transfers. later in the window a little harder to fill.
After successfully completing the deal to bring Pereira to the club in 2018, Leicester should certainly be inspired by this and beat the competition until the signature of the man from Atalanta.
