What Brendan Rodgers said about signing new forwards

In his press conference before Leicester’s match at Arsenal tonight, Brendan Rodgers discussed the need to boost the attacking options at the club:

There’s no doubt we need more options going forward. If we have European football next season it will increase the number of games and of course we’ll then need to improve the squad for that.

Our recruitment team are looking at targets and options for us to improve the squad.

Vardy, 33, is on course to win the Premier League’s Golden Boot this season. He has 21 goals.

Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is his closest rival on 19 goals.

Southampton’s Danny Ings has 18 goals, while Liverpool’s Mo Salah has 17 goals.
