Ranking Leicester City’s 2019 summer signings from worst to best

Leicester City have enjoyed a stunning 2019/20 campaign so far, with Brendan Rodgers the architect of some brilliant, positive attacking football at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes find themselves mixing it with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table, and hopes of Champions League football are strong right now.

Leicester had a brilliant summer on the transfers front, with five deals being done by the club – but how do they rank from worst to best?

N/A Callum Hulme

Hulme was signed by the club on a free transfer from League One side Bury.

He is yet to make an appearance in PL2, but could well be a name to listen out for in years to come.

#4 James Justin

Justin joined the club from Luton Town and has made four appearances for the first-team so far.

The right-back will certainly have to bide his time while Ricardo Pereira remains at the club.

The Portuguese is one of the best in the division in his position at this point, so talented Justin must be patient.


#3 Dennis Praet

Praet has been unable to break into a solid starting XI thus far, but has offered glimpses of his talent from the bench.

The Belgian was snapped up for a reported £18 million from Sampdoria (BBC Sport), and it might take him a bit of time to set about justifying that fee.

Although that said, Leicester fans have to feel encouraged given Caglar Soyunce was signed for a very similar fee and has turned out to be amazing business following the departure of Harry Maguire.

#2 Ayoze Perez

It was a bit of a slow start for Ayoze Perez but he seems to be into the swing of things now, and he often looks a threat when working in tandem with Pereira on the Leicester right.

Under Rodgers, Perez could become a top quality Premier League player.

#1 Youri Tielemans

What a brilliant coup this was by the club.

Last term Tielemans impressed on loan in the second half of 2018/19, and bosses moved quickly to secure him on a permanent basis, with his reputation having grown significantly.

He cost a reported £40 million (BBC Sport), but the Belgian maestro is quickly making that look like a bargain.

The 22-year-old is superb technically, has a great engine and has a goal in him.

He promises to be a top-class number eight in the Premier League in a few years’ time.
