Leicester Sign Vicente Iborra from Sevilla: Spaniard Could Thrive in the Premier League

It is not usual for a Premier League champion side to finish in the lower half of the table in the following season. But then Leicester’s triumph in the 2015-16 season was also not a usual occurrence. That title win was built on the solid midfield performance of N’Golo Kante. But since the Frenchman was lured away by Chelsea last season, Leicester struggled a bit in the midfield, which along with several other reasons can explain why the Champions from …
