Leicester Reveal Squad Ahead Of Chelsea Clash, Striker Duo Make Cut Amid Besiktas Efforts To Sign Them
Chelsea take on Leicester City today having lost just one of their last 11 Premier League head to head games.
The Foxes will have Jamie Vardy back after missing Leicester’s FA Cup trip to his former club Fleetwood.
Vardy missed the game with a groin injury.
Leicester will however, be without Wes Morgan and Danny Simpson and Robert Huth due to injury.
Strikers Kelechi Iheanacho and Islam Slimani have made the squad despite being linked with a January exit.
A source close to Besiktas revealed to Turkish-Football that both players are on the shortlist as a possible replacement for Cenk Tosun who joined Everton last week.
The Black Eagles sent a delegation to England for the second time inside a week to hold talks with the representatives of their targets.
Iheanacho is considered a more likely option considering he is currently behind Vardy, Slimani and Okazaki in the pecking order.
The Blues have won each of their last seven home Premier League games since losing to Manchester City.
The Foxes meanwhile are winless in their last 12 away games against ‘top six’ opposition in the Premier League.
Provisional squad: Schmeichel, Hamer, Jakupovic, Maguire, Chilwell, Fuchs, Benalouane, Dragovic, James, King, Albrighton, Amartey, Gray, Silva, Ndidi, Mahrez, Iborra, Choudhury, Musa, Vardy, Slimani, Okazaki, Ulloa, Iheanacho
