As reported Fabrizio Romano on his twitter account, the Leicester City has reached an agreement with Southampton for the sale of Jannik Vestergaaard, who will become the Foxes’ third big signing in this summer transfer market after Patson Daka and Boubhakary Soumaré. One of the best summers of the club at the level of incorporations.
The 29-year-old Danish center-back comes from being one of the best centers of last season in the Premier League and the European Championship, being a fundamental piece in the structure of Denmark to reach the semifinals of the competition. Now he will have a new opportunity in a top-notch team in England.
The one chosen by Rodgers to replace Fofana
Leicester City have yet to reach an agreement with the player, but there appear to be no problems. Fabrizio Romano confirmed that they are close to finalizing the contract.
Vestergaard arrives at King Power Stadium to make up for the loss of Wesley Fofana, who was seriously injured in a friendly match against Villarreal, and to become a teammate of Caglar Soyüncü, who is the only center-back in good condition at the moment. Evans also has certain physical problems with days to go before the start of the season.
Leicester is aiming to qualify for the next UEFA Champions League, although it seems increasingly complicated due to the great additions that Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpoool have made, but there is a project that is in a position to strike on table.
The Dane had been watched by Tottenham to strengthen his defense, but the arrival of Cuti Romero changed the club’s sporting planning in this summer transfer market. His performance has caught the attention of many greats.
