Leicester City currently sit 3rd in the Premier League wit 53 points, having five points gap between second placed Manchester City and fourth placed Chelsea, and still have nine games to play if the league resumes.

As known, the English league matches and a plenty of sporting events have been suspended due to coronavirus pandemic, however, the Foxes would definitely want to finish the season, as they are looking to secure place for the Champions League next season.

This summer head coach Brendan Rodgers might bring in some new players to the Goodison Park, and here is the possible Leicester lineup, if Adam Lallana plays for the Foxes next season, and also if Ben Chilwell departs.

As Kasper Schmiechel enjoyed quite impressive campaign this term, he would be the first choice stopper for the Foxes, whilst Ricardo Pereira, Johnny Evans and Caglar Soyunchu would all keep their places in the defence.

Ricardo is now ruled out through a knee ligament injury, however he could make a comeback for the start of next season, particularly if the start date is pushed back until September.

Ben Chilwell is still heavily linked with a move away from Leicester, even though, it would not be a shock if Chelsea or Manchester City signed him during this summer transfer window.

Charlie Taylor of Burnley has been reported to be a possible replacement, but there is opportunity that James Justin could be a replacement for Chilwell in the starting lineup.

Meanwhile, Harvey Barnes, Youri Tielemans and Wilfred Ndidi have all been in an excellent form for the team this campiagn and are almost certain to keep their spots in the starting XI.

James Maddison has been heavily linked with a move away from Goodison Park, mostly to Manchester United, however, it seems that the Red Devils will prioritise a move for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, which means that the former Norwich City youngster could stay with the Rodgers’ side heading into the 2020-21 campaign.

Liverpool’s Adam Lallana is presently available on a free transfer as he enters the final stages of his deal at Anfield and having played under Rodgers at the Reds, could well make the move to the King Power Stadium.

The 31-year-old is able to play off both sides and through the middle, making him an even more desirable option for Leicester, who are expected to be active in the market this summer.

Jamie Vardy, who will turn 34 during the 2020-21 campaign, has shown no signs of slowing down this term. as he has scored 19 Premier League goals and will again be Leicester’s first-choice striker even if a new attacker were to arrive this summer.
