The Nigeria international has distinguished himself as a proven performer in the middle of the park and signing an alternative should not be a priority, says Emile Heskey.
Former England international Heskey has opined that Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers may decide to boost his squad with new players in the summer.
Still, a new defensive midfielder would not be one of them because Wilfred Ndidi has been impressive in that role.
Ndidi has been one of the key stars for the Foxes this term, with the Nigerian playing a crucial part in making Leicester’s defence one of the best in the league.
A solid defensive base helped propel Rodgers’ side up the Premier League table with the East Midland club favourite to pick one of the UEFA Champions League tickets at the end of the campaign.
Leicester City are still a few quality players short of fighting for the league title, with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool head and shoulders above everyone else in the English top flight.
Heskey, who played for both Leicester City and Liverpool during a respectable career, believes Rodgers may need to strengthen in defence and attack. Still, he’s confident that Ndidi’s position is already occupied by the best.
“They should bring in a centre-back and possibly a centre forward, they’ve got [Wilfred] Ndidi and [James] Maddison, and they’ve got the wings covered in that sense, but I think a centre-back in case they haven’t got that much cover,” Heskey told GentingBet
“They have some young lads coming through, but they’ll need a bit of time. But centre-back and possibly a centre-forward, they should maybe look at and make sure they’re sorted in those positions.
“But Brendan Rodgers might be happy with what they’ve got at this moment in time, and they’re not going to add just for the sake of it.”
