Matt Le Tissier has transfer advice for Leicester, makes prediction for next season

Leicester City will surely be busy during this summer's transfer window.

Former professional footballer Matt le Tissier looks on during day fifteen of the World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace on December 30, 2013 in London, England.

Sky Sports pundit Matt Le Tissier urged Leicester to sign a new striker and a centre-back this summer, whilst backing them to make a push for the top six next season, when speaking exclusively to Sky Sports.

The Foxes are a team rejuvenated under Brendan Rodgers, and they enjoyed a decent Premier League campaign this season, ending up in ninth spot in the table.


Leicester seem to have all the basic ingredients needed to really kick on next season, but that doesn't mean that Brendan Rodgers won't be looking to bolster his ranks at the King Power Stadium during the summer.

And Le Tissier told Sky Sports how the east Midlands outfit should be looking to bring in at least two new players during the off-season, if they are to kick on and challenge for a top six finish next term:

"They will try to break up the monopoly of the top six especially if Manchester United continue to slide and Arsenal do not sort their defence out. Jamie Vardy is 32 but looks pretty sharp, although he needs a back-up striker. I would imagine that a better back-up centre-half would suit Leicester. Wes Morgan is getting on a bit now but that is a position where they need another decent player in. I think they will have more than enough to cement a challenge to the top six."

Quite who Rodgers is targeting this summer remains to be seen, but if Leicester do bring in two or three new faces, they will have every chance of gatecrashing the top six next term.
