Three transfers Leicester City should make for the fight for survival in the Premier League

While Leicester City have to think about sales and balancing their books to meet profit and sustainability rules, they also have to plan their signings.

Their squad needs reinforcements to help them in their fight for Premier League survival, especially if they are hit with a points deduction. Smart recruiting is a must this summer.

Signings before July and the start of the new accounting year look unlikely, but that hasn’t stopped bookies tipping City to target some of the big names tipped to be on the move this summer. Here, we look at three players William Hill have City on and whether they will be at the King Power Stadium in September.

Calvin Phillips

City are currently 5/1 favorites to sign the Manchester City and England midfielder, behind Everton and his former club Leeds. Phillips had a torrid spell on loan at West Ham and it certainly feels the 28-year-old needs a new permanent home to bring him back to the form that saw him as a regular starter for the Three Lions.

But that home seems unlikely to be at the King Power Stadium. In the position that Phillips would play, at the base of midfield, City already have Harry Winks and he is expected to be one of the first names on the team sheet in August.
