Leicester Tracking Maynard?

Leicester City manager Sven Goran Eriksson is all set for a busy summer of transfer activity, it seems the Foxes first ideal signing would be a new goalkeeper but many strikers have been linked also. Emile Heskey and Marlon King have been identified as possible targets over the past week, while Yakubu and Diomansy Kamara could make their loan moves permanent. Today the Foxes have been linked with a new identity, according to the Daily Express Sven Goran Eriksson could be tempted with a £3 million bid for Bristol City striker Nicky Maynard.

Maynard has been a sensational hit with the Bristol City fans, as he made a massive impact at Ashton Gate last season. For most of the 2010/2011 Championship campaign Maynard has been frustrated by injury, however the 24 year old goalscoring machine recently made his comeback to first team action. Nicky has also been linked with numerous Premier League clubs for the last two season’s with Merseyside clubs Everton and Liverpool rumoured to be interested in him. With Leicester prepared to attract high quality players over the summer transfer window, Nicky Maynard could well be a possible signing. With many national newspapers stating that Eriksson has been handed a £10 million plus transfer kitty, the man himself has failed to indentify just how much money the East Midlands club will spend.

You can call this current period as confusing, as Leicester City fans are praying for big named signings but they are still left in the dark over how much money Aiyawatt Raksriaksorn is prepared to spend. The future does look bright however as an exciting summer of transfer activity is just around the corner for the Foxes fan’s, will Maynard be on Sven’s radar or will he look elsewhere for a proven Championship striker?

    some of these potential signings sound good on paper…but all have flaws…heskey..age,injury record and lack of goals, maynard.. injury problems, king…need I say more…the yak…an enigma, kamara…still a lot to prove….I wonder if all these names are a smokescreen..
