Leicester City boss not worried by interest in top players

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says he is not worried if his players are being linked to bigger clubs. The former Liverpool, Celtic and Swansea City manager has vowed he wants to challenge hierarchy and find a spot for Leicester City between the big teams in the Premier League.

Leicester lost star defender Harry Maguire to Manchester United last summer, and this summer another group of players are being linked with moves to one of the clubs of the ‘Big Six’. Rodgers says he is feeling relaxed on keeping Ben Chilwell, despite interest from Chelsea in the left defender.

“The club have got good experience of situations where bigger the so-called bigger clubs come in,” Rodgers said. “We’re always aware that while there are good players, that will always be of interest to other teams that have more money than us. We don’t lose sleep worrying about it. We’re here to develop players and improve the standard of the team. Of course, if we’re doing that then that will be taken note of by other clubs.”
