If Leicester lose Ben Chilwell they should do everything to land Celtic's Kieran Tierney
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers will look to strengthen his squad during the summer transfer window.
The ex-Celtic manager has been public in praising the quality at his disposal since taking over.
One big problem that Rodgers could encounter is being able to keep hold of his star attractions.
Harry Maguire, Ben Chilwell and James Maddison are all highly-rated and the Foxes boss is set to field some interest in the trio.
Chilwell, in particular, is set to be courted heavily.
The Telegraph are suggesting that Manchester City might not be put off with having to stump up a world record fee for the defender.
The 22-year-old has played 27 times this season for the Foxes and looks set for a bright future.
Money is not thought to be tight at the King Power Stadium.
Rodgers could sell Chilwell, however, to allow room for a former player of his.
Kieran Tierney was Rodgers’ left-back at Celtic and signing the 21-year-old would be a coup for Leicester.
In 2018, the Daily Star reported that Manchester United were scouting Tierney and other clubs are likely to be interested this summer.
It would represent a blow if Leicester lost Chilwell in the summer, but replacing him with Tierney might just soften the blow.
Leicester’s current left-back is a product of their own academy and as a result, his departure would hurt.
Tierney is of similar quality, if not better though and he would represent a more than adequate replacement.
Should the Foxes offload Chilwell and not land Tierney it would represent bad business for the club.
