Leicester will replace Maguire in January

The Premier League has started on Friday night with Liverpool’s win over Norwich City, but Leicester City are starting their campaign on Sunday against Wolverhampton. They will do that without Harry Maguire, who was sold in the last week of the transfer window for the world record fee for a defender. Brendan Rodgers spoke of that problem in his press conference, admitting that not replacing the 26-year-old England international could be a problem.

The Leicester Mercury are reporting that Rodgers has admitted he will “have a look” for a new centre-back in the January transfer window. The Foxes did not have enough time to get a replacement for Maguire, with James Tarkowski and Lewis Dunk mentioned in the media as the prime candidates. But Leicester in the end did not get any of the two.

Brighton reportedly asked for 45 million pounds in order to let Dunk go, but Leicester opted to wait. Leicester are therefore a bit lighter on options in that area of the pitch, but reportedly, Rodgers believes they will find solutions until January.
