Leicester City has signed £50m star player from Reims

Leicester City and Everton are vying for the signing of Stade de Reims midfielder Amir Richardson (22), according to a report from L’Équipe.

Richardson’s previous campaign was more challenging than his 2022–23 campaign, when he had a breakthrough campaign while on loan with Le Havre AC. After a summer of heavy expenditure, the technically skilled midfielder slid down the pecking order and earned just 14 starts in Ligue 1 under Will Still and then Samba Diawara. As the season went on, those starts grew fewer and farther in between.

Richardson may depart Reims this summer despite the change in management. That’s in spite of the fact that the Moroccan international was employed at Le Havre with Luka Elsner.

Although Serie A team Udinese and Leicester and Everton are reportedly interested, according to L’Équipe, no team is now prepared to pay Reims’ €10 million asking price for Richardson, whose contract expires in 2027. Another potential candidate, RC Strasbourg Alsace, was compelled to withdraw from consideration due to the high price tag.

Despite reports that Serie A teams Udinese, Leicester, and Everton are keen, no team is willing to give Reims the €10 million that they are seeking for Richardson, whose contract expires in 2027, according to L’Équipe. The enormous cost forced RC Strasbourg Alsace, another possible option, to remove themselves from consideration.

Few could have guessed even five years ago that Wrexham would be playing against League One opponents after back-to-back promotions.

Nonetheless, this implies that Wrexham will require additional players this summer, and Phil Parkinson has already signed two of them.

the goalkeeper, signed a long-term contract with Wrexham in June after his contract with Arsenal expired this summer.

Parkinson was able to follow it up with another fantastic signing this week, which was a huge coup for Wrexham.

While on loan at Mansfield Town the previous season, Brunt assisted Wrexham and the Stags in winning promotion to League One.

Brunt was Mansfield’s “number one target” and they intended to sign him permanently, but Wrexham was able to seize the opportunity.

For an undisclosed fee, Brunt joined Wrexham, pledging his future to the team and broadening Parkinson’s back-row options.

It is interesting to note that Brunt’s final league match was a 2-0 loss for Mansfield versus Wrexham at the STōK Cae Ras.
