Enzo Maresca was brought in as their new head coach to kick things off.

Pep Guardiola’s longtime No. 2 at Manchester City, he will bring an attacking football type and a contact list that would make any other club in the second tier the envy.

It’s something he’ll be happy to use to ensure immediate promotion to the top flight.

Leicester have already seen Youri Tielemans, Caglar Soyuncu, Daniel Amartey, Papy Mendy, Ayoze Perez, Ryan Bertrand and Tete leave at the end of their contracts, while plenty of others are attracting top-level interest.

Maresca will be determined to play a possession-based game from back to front, something Zack Steffen will be a key part of.

The Manchester City goalkeeper, who spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough, is renowned for his ball skills and ability to remain unflappable under pressure, something that will be crucial in setting the tone for Leicester this season.

James Justin, Harry Souttar and Luke Thomas are all likely to have a chance to impress, while Conor Coady will sit alongside them in central defence.

The Wolves man spent last season at Everton and will bring leadership and quality on the ball to the heart of the back-line.

Wilfried Ndidi is expected to be a key player for Leicester if they can retain his services, while he looks poised to be joined by Harry Winks, who will join Tottenham Hotspur for £10 million.

With Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall becoming a key figure for the Foxes next season, the trio could join Cole Palmer on loan.

While no interest in the teenager has yet been reported, the winger may leave City on loan next season to pursue regular first-team football, something that would be guaranteed to him under his old coach Maresca at Leicester.

Provided a move doesn’t tempt him, Kelechi Iheanacho looks set to play a key offensive role for the Foxes in the Championship and could be joined by one of the league’s most prolific forwards.
