Record breaker, Jamie Vardy will once again lead the Foxes line next season after snubbing a move to Arsenal by committing his future to Leicester City signing a new and improved contract.

Vardy was the story of last season, his desire to run at defenders and chase down any loose balls really helped Leicester on the attack and his style of play was too much to handle for most defenders that came up against him. Vardy is still writing his story and will certainly add to it next season, though he will likely have a new strike partner.

Vardy regularly played with Okazaki last season in a 4-4-2 formation but it is very likely he will play up-front with Ahmed Musa after Leicester and CSKA Moscow come to an agreement on the fee for the striker. The 23-year-old will add even more goals to the Champions and has scored 54 goals in 168 games for CSKA who he signed for in 2012.

Leicester will be packed for striker options next season with Vardy, Musa, Okazaki and Ulloa all rotating to keep the squad fresh, the bonus for Ranieri is he’ll have two players coming from the bench who know exactly how the club play and exactly what the manager wants.

Formation?

In summary, I expect Leicester to stick with the traditional 4-4-2 formation that saw the club win the title last season, they are showing signs of intent in the transfer market and the Foxes faithful should be very excited ahead of the new season.
