Five Leicester stars who could be flogged in summer transfer overhaul including trio on radar of Champions League clubs | The Sun

LEICESTER could sell a number of big stars following relegation from the Premier League.

The Foxes reportedly have a top ten Prem budget and a squad assembled for hundreds of millions of pounds.

But with income set to fall dramatically in the Championship Leicester will likely have to sell their prized assets after reporting losses of £92million last year.

Many will want to leave in search of top-flight football with defender Caglar Soyuncu one of several likely to leave when their contracts expire in June – the Turk is believed to have agreed to join Atletico Madrid.

A handful of stars are wanted by Champions League teams with the club set for a squad overhaul this summer.

SunSport takes a look at five big names who could be off when the transfer window opens.

James Maddison

The England international is destined to leave and he is likely to join a Champions League club.

Newcastle made bids for Maddison, 26, in January and last summer but saw a £40m offer knocked back.

The Magpies are believed to have made the midfielder their number one transfer target this summer with sporting director Dan Ashworth keen.

And Leicester may be resigned to losing him with former manager Brendan Rodgers admitting Maddison needs to play at the highest level.

Youri Tielemans

Tielemans, 26, is certain to leave when his contract expires at the end of next month.

He rejected fresh terms last year when he was being pursued by Manchester United.

The Belgian was linked to the Red Devils again in January but Arsenal now appear to be leading the race for his signature.

It is claimed the Gunners have held talks with the midfielder's representatives, though Newcastle and Liverpool are also said to be monitoring his situation.

Harvey Barnes

The winger is another Leicester star attracting attention from Newcastle and is likely to follow Maddison and Tielemans out of the exit door.

Tottenham and Aston Villa are reportedly “watching developments closely” too with Leicester demanding £60m for the 25-year-old.

He still has two years remaining on his contract but the Foxes may look to cash in while they can to put towards a squad rebuild this summer.

Wilfred Ndidi

Ndidi, 26, is another Leicester star whose form has dropped dramatically over the last 12 months.

But he has been linked to the likes of Real Madrid, PSG and United in the past so is likely to court interest once again.

He also has just one year remaining on his contract so there could be an opportunity for a club to strike a bargain.

Ricardo Pereira

The right-back was superb for Leicester before his cruciate ligament injury, which kept him out for 10 months.

Pereira once had Barcelona, Tottenham and PSG vying for his signature but at 29-years-old a move back to his native Portugal may be more likely.

Injury has reduced his game time in recent seasons so he may be keen to move on to revitalise his career.
