£57million. That’s how much it cost to assemble Leicester City’s squad of Premier League champions. Loose change in the world of football.

The three main stars of the Foxes title-winning season, N’Golo Kante, Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, cost a ‘measly’ £6.8million between them. Incredible value for money for a PFA winner, a FWA winner and a midfielder who is now wanted by a whole host of top European clubs.

With the summer transfer window fast approaching, how much will it cost football’s ‘vultures’ to prize away Leicester’s heroes, now?

Kasper Schmeichel – £3.75million

Peter Schmeichel’s sperm is pricey! If you want to sign Kasper Schmeichel it will cost you just shy of £4million. Which, when you consider the 16 clean sheets and counting this season, and the fact that, at 29, the Dane is entering the peak years for a ‘keeper, is great value for money.

CLICKON Value: £10million

Christian Fuchs – £3.38million


CLICKON Value: £6million

Wes Morgan – £1.8million


Not bad for the captain and spine of a title-winning side!

CLICKON Value: £3.5million

Robert Huth – £4.5million


Under £5million for a man with three Premier League winners medals? Bargain.

CLICKON Value: £3million

Danny Simpson – £2.25million


About £2.25million overpriced. How the full-back could’ve cost Leicester long-term following his sending off against Arsenal (luckily for the Foxes, the Gunners are a weak-minded bunch).

CLICKON Value: Free Transfer

Marc Albrighton – £3million

Aston Villa reject to Premier League winner. Mental.

CLICKON Value: £2million

Danny Drinkwater – £4.5million


The former Manchester United midfielder epitomises everything about this Foxes side: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

CLICKON Value: £2million

N’Golo Kante – £7.5million


There’s nothing more to be said about this man. Phenomenal athlete.
CLICKON Value: £22million

Riyad Mahrez – £15million


CLICKON Value: £30million

Jamie Vardy – £9million


Exhibit 10384828247 why Jamie Vardy is an absolute renegade just like us!

You’d imagine it would take a lot more than £9million to get the former Fleetwood Town striker!

CLICKON Value: £15million

Shinji Okazaki – £7.5million


The unsung hero of this Foxes squad, who allows Mahrez and Vardy to do what they do best in the final third. Every team needs a selfless individual.

CLICKON Value: £9million
