Leicester City made history when they defied all odds to win the 2015/16 Premier League title, and made it all the way to the last eight of the Champions League the next term.

Since then, they have struggled to reach those heights, meandering about in mid-table obscurity, while also losing some of their best players to more established clubs.

The appointment of Brendan Rodgers midway through last season was indicative of the club's ambition.

The Foxes finished in ninth spot for two consecutive seasons, but their off-season transfer activity shows that they have set their sights much higher this term.

The highly-rated Youri Tielemans was signed from AS Monaco for a club-record fee, while Ayoze Perez, Dennis Praet and James Justin were also added to strengthen their squad.


Although they lost the services of Harry Maguire, the world record fee gotten for him softens the blow, while the services of Jamie Vardy were retained, as well as those of the ever-impressive Nigerian international Wilfred Ndidi.
