Against all the odds, Leicester City won the Premier League in the 2015/16 season, ahead of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester City, in one of the most thrilling title races the league has seen in recent history.
It only took the Foxes two seasons to do so since their return to the competition in the 2014/15 season, where they finished in a much less impressive 14th place.
Although they have failed to challenge for the title since then, they are now on track to finish just outside of the top six, with a fierce battle in place between Watford, Wolves, Everton, and West Ham.
During their time in the top flight, they have showcased some unbelievable talent that has been recognised by other teams in the league.
From classic English forwards to box-to-box engines, here are some of the best, most valuable players to arrive at the King Power Stadium in the past five years, many of whom were in the Premier League winning squad in 2015/2016.
Signing from Aston Villa in 2014, the English winger played a key role in Leicester’s “great escape” in their return to the Premier League, resulting in them finishing 14th and avoiding relegation.
Following their Premier League title win, Albrighton would be Leicester City’s first Champions League goalscorer in a 3-0 win over Club Brugge.
Transferring from Hull City in 2017 for a hefty £17 million, he has solidified himself as an important piece of Leicester City’s defence.
Earning himself a spot in the England 2018 World Cup squad, along with domestic teammate Jamie Vardy, he has earned the reputation of a solid centre-half.
Joining the club from French side Caen for a small fee of £5.6 million, the box-to-box engine was an integral player in their title-winning season. His ability to win back the ball so effortlessly is a joy to watch, and was loved at the King Power Stadium.
Kante impressed spectators, enough to earn a move to Chelsea next season, only to win the Premier League with the London club for a second consecutive year; the only player to do so since Eric Cantona.
Although he began his professional career at Midlands rivals, Nottingham Forest, Wes Morgan would go on to captain over 200 games for Leicester when he signed in 2014, including in the Championship and Premier League title-winning seasons.
Moving from French Ligue 2 side Le Havre, Mahrez joined Leicester, who he initially thought was a rugby club, and assisted them to a Championship title, where they would be promoted back to the Premier League for the first time in 10 years.
His great dribbling skills and ability to beat defenders is often mesmerising, which unsurprisingly attracted the attention of Manchester City, who bought him for £60 million in 2018.
This made him the most expensive African player of all time, and Leicester’s record transfer fee received.
Jamie Vardy was released by Sheffield Wednesday at 16 years of age; 10 years later he would sign for Leicester from Fleetwood Town for a non-league record of £1 million and score 25 goals in his first season at the King Power Stadium.
Still playing for Leicester, he currently has 97 goals registered to his name, making him the top scorer in their history.
After a successful few seasons with German club Mainz, becoming the highest scoring Japanese player in Bundesliga history, Leicester signed the forward for around £7 million in 2015.
Since then, he has scored vital goals with the club and played an important part in the squad which would go on to win the Premier League.
The Danish number one has made almost 300 appearances for Leicester since joining from Leeds United in 2011, with 104 clean sheets for the club.
He remains a pivotal part of the plans for the future at the King Power Stadium.
