Jamie Vardy is Leicester City's go to man.

While the midfield and attack we have here is as impressive as it gets, we have left out Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Fernandinho and Yaya Toure.

Clubs like Everton, Southampton, West Ham and Leicester will start to be snapping at their heels, with Ronald Koeman's side in particular showing a lot of ambition in the transfer market.
