City’s striker problem rages on
Injuries to both Jamie Vardy and Patson Daka as well as Kelechi Iheanacho’s participation in the Africa Cup of Nations leaves Leicester City without a natural striker for the FA Cup clash with Watford.
After playing through pain for the final 20 minutes against Liverpool, Vardy is now set to be on the sidelines for at least a month.
This development may force Rodgers to make a season-long loan deal for a young striker but that option still remains to be seen as Top flight clubs tend not to let players leave on a temporary basis during this time (and also when the pandemic is spreading like wildfire).
Another option is making a potential permanent transfer for Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Dias who is performing so well in the Championship.
