The Foxes were crowned champions for the first time in their 132-year history on Monday night after nearest challengers Tottenham were held to a 2-2 draw at Chelsea. Their unlikely success has led to a number of their key players, including Riyad Mahrez and NGolo Kante, being linked with summer moves away from the club.
