‘Next season is a real crisis’ Leicester may leave ‘three’ as free agents

Leicester City’s real crisis could be next season.

Leicester are going through a tough time. After winning like a fairy tale in the 2015-16 season, he has consistently demonstrated his competitiveness in the first division. It ranked 5th in a row in the 2019-20 season and 2020-21 season, and consistently threatened top teams, such as ranking 8th last season. But this season is different. Ranked 13th, it is performing 메이저놀이터below expectations. There is a difference from the relegation zone, but there is a possibility that it will fall only with the results of 2-3 games with a difference of 6 points from ’18th place’ Everton.

But the real crisis could be next season. This is because three players are in danger of leaving as free agents (FA). The British media ‘Telegraph’ reported that “there is a possibility that Yuri Thielemans, Ayose Perez and Chalar Søwinjwi may leave the team as free agents after their contracts expire in the summer.”

Perez’ departure was somewhat expected. This is because he lost his position in the team this season and left on loan to Real Betis. Life in Spain is not easy. This is because he has only played 39 minutes in 2 league matches so far. Since he is at an age where the aging curve should also be considered, there is little room for an extension of the contract even if he comes to the team.

Sowinjwi is a candidate this season, but he is a resource that can start at any time. After joining the 2018-19 season, he steadily expanded his position and played as a main player from the 2019-20 season to last season. This season, he only appeared in 4 games including the cup competition, but he is a player who can be of great help to the team as he is 26 years old and has entered his prime.

Of greatest concern is Tielemans. It is the body and core of Leicester itself. After joining from AS Monaco in the 2019-20 season, he immediately established himself as a regular in the team. In the 2020-21 season, he played more than 50 games, including appearances in all league matches.

In fact, Thielemans’ departure was already predicted. He has been linked with Arsenal for a long time and after his contract expired last summer, word circulated that he would join. Leicester may have considered selling, but the unfortunate thing is that the team’s key players have to be sent without a transfer fee. Since Thielemans has also made up his mind to transfer, the chances of extending his contract are very slim.
