Leicester City have completed yet another season in England’s top division after earning a point against Chelsea on the final day of the Premier League on Sunday.
Since doing the impossible and winning the title in 2016, the Midlands side have managed to finish 12th and two consecutive ninth-place finishes, cementing themselves as a mid-table team.
With Brendan Rodgers taking over Leicester in February, he is yet to see the club through a transfer window, but with the season now over, the 46-year-old will be going over his transfer wishlist in order to decide who to bring to the club and make that push for European qualification.
The players that were brought in last summer and in January have helped the Foxes to their second ninth-place finish, and although they weren’t chosen by Rodgers, they have still had a job to do over the campaign. But how well have they done?
We have ranked Leicester’s 2018/19 signings from A-F based on how well we think they have performed this term.
James Maddison - B
Leicester needed an attacking partner for the lethal Jamie Vardy, and they found just that among Norwich’s arsenal, signing Maddison for around £20 million. He has scored seven goals in 36 appearances and has seven assists.
Ricardo Pereira - B
The Portuguese full-back has enjoyed a consistent season in defence and has even helped at the other end of the pitch, picking up six assists. He received Leciester’s Player of the Season award. a testament to how well he has done.
Caglar Soyuncu - D
The centre-half has only featured six times this season and has shown flashes of what he is capable of but the 22-year-old still has a bit of work to do on his game. He is certainly a prospect for the future.
Rachid Ghezzal - E
The winger has only managed three goals in all competitions since his arrival from Monaco, and all in all, has suffered a very below average season. You wonder if he will be at the club next season.
Danny Ward - C
It is clear Ward was brought in as a back-up keeper to Kasper Schmeichel; he has done just that with the Welshman only appearing in cup games, earning three clean sheets in four appearances in the League Cup. While he hasn’t performed much, he has done well when given the chance.
Jonny Evans - B
Another fairly consistent signing for the Foxes with the ex-West Brom man playing alongside Harry Maguire at the back. Signed for just under £4 million, it was a real bargain from the Foxes.
Youri Tielemans (loan) - A
Leicester fans will be hoping this signing becomes permanent after an incredible second half of the season in the centre of the park. Despite only featuring 13 times, the 22-year-old has been involved in eight goals for the Foxes.
