Blistering campaign will allow Leicester to grow in the summer

| 08.02.2016

Leicester City’s fairytale journey to the top of the Premier League is undoubtedly the story of the season and it could be set to get better.

The Foxes are already looking at summer targets and their current lofty position is allowing them to compete in the transfer market in a way they never would have been able to before.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Foxes are looking into the possibility of signing Ousmane Dembele in the summer.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been linked with the 18-year-old winger and the fact that Leicester will be competing for his signature as well show how far Ranieri has moved the team forward.

The Rennes winger is one of the most promising players in Ligue 1 and the allure of Champions League football may tempt him to leave France.

Only Leicester and Arsenal look guaranteed to make it to the pinnacle of European football and joining the English title holders would be another plus.

The Foxes are priced at 2/1 to win the Premier League and are currently five points clear and this will help them bring in coveted players like Dembele.

Another player being linked with a move to the King Power Stadium is Ahmed Musa, a 23-year-old striker currently plying his trade for CSKA Moscow.

The Nigerian forward has scored 35 goals in 95 Russian Premier League starts and Leicester are rumoured to be preparing a £23m move for the player.

Now the Foxes are in for this type of player you can see how far they have progressed and this will also have long-lasting benefits.

This is because, if Leicester can bring in higher-calibre footballers, they will continue to go from strength to strength and this season will be looked back on as the one where the league leaders established themselves amongst England’s elite.
