Brendan Rodgers says Leicester’s strong start to the season will help him attract Europe’s top players

“There’s also the style in which we play and hopefully that’s a marker for players to want to be a part of it.  Our mission has always been clear, we want to play European football and of course the best players want to play in those competitions.

“I think people can look at ourselves and see how we work and how we play, they will know about the recent history of Leicester. It can be a fantastic club to come and work for.

“We’re playing a style of football where players will improve. With the training facility and progress we’re making, it’s a really exciting prospect.”

Rodgers smashed Leicester’s transfer record in the summer with the £32 million capture of Youri Tielemans, while Ayoze Perez also moved from Newcastle for £30 million. And he has admitted he is happy to play a waiting game on his top targets if deals prove difficult in the New Year.

“I don’t think it needs much work. We know the areas of the team that we want to improve. If we can do that, brilliant – if we can’t: okay, we have to wait until the summer, but we will look to strengthen the squad where possible,” he said.

“At the moment we have a good working squad and we’ll need that over the remainder of this month. But there will probably be one or two players who go out and get some game time. But at the moment the squad is working well.”
