Shinji Okazaki eyes go to Spain or Italy, because the Premier League winner will leave Leicester on free transfer

  • Shinji Okazaki has lost the ranking in Leicester City
  • New boss Brendan Rodgers wants to brush up his attack options
  • Okazaki has made only one Premier League start for the Foxes this season

Shinji Okazaki leaves Leicester when his contract expires at the end of the season in a departure other than the side that won the Premier League.

It is assumed that the Japanese striker wants to look for opportunities abroad, in Spain or Italy, and Brendan Rodgers will be looking to freshen up his attack.

The future of Danny Simpson is also uncertain and with conversations about a possible new deal that still has to take place, the prospect is that he could become a free agent.

Okazaki, who will be 33 on Tuesday, has limited his chances for the first team to deliver the perfect foil to Jamie Vardy when the club claimed a miraculous title.

He met in the summer of 2015 for Mainz for £ 7million and signed improved terms after he became champion. But he has only started one Premier League with this campaign, 19 times from the bank.

Simpson was another integral member of Claudio Ranieri's team and brought solidity to the defense, but he has lost his place for Ricardo Pereira this season, only appeared eight times, and his contract will expire this summer.

Leicester could offer the 32-year-old a deal as a back-up, but Rodgers is expected to see first whether signing a new right to challenge Pereira makes more sense.
