Andy King believes there’s no reason why Leicester should not be top four regulars.
A stunning run of form sees Leicester top of the log in the first half of the season.
And with Leicester top by Christmas, it is possible they could go on to claim it.
“It is a big couple of years,” he told Sky Sports. “Challenging for the Premier League title is obviously a big ask, but I don’t see any reason why we can’t get in the top four or six, or even the top eight to start with and then try and build from there.
“That is the owners’ vision. That is what they set out to do when they first took over the club. Ranieri is an experienced manager, he has managed in Europe and is doing really good job here.
“He is aware that he has inherited a good team and squad and maybe even better than what he thought he might be getting.”
King also feels his side have the resilience and depth to remain at the top end of the table come the end of the campaign.
“When the fixtures were drawn at the start of the season we thought December could be a really tough period for us if we didn’t make a good start.
“We then lost to Arsenal and people thought ‘is that it, is that them finished now?’ and we have bounced back.
“Now we are 10 unbeaten again, so we have got resilience and quality in depth which we can call upon when needed.”
