The club have games against Newcastle and West Ham to try and make a great escape.
However, if they are unable to do so, £200m worth of talent could be lost to circling suitors.
James Maddison is the most valuable of these, with a transfer value of £48m.
Newcastle, Manchester United and Tottenham have all been linked to the England international, who has ten goals and nine assists from 28 games in the Prem this season.
Harvey Barnes will likely join Maddison in leaving in the summer, with the Magpies once again earmarked for a move for the £28m-rated ace.
The 25-year-old is the only other star at the club to have hit double figures in goals this season, with 12 to his name.
Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans will almost certainly leave.
But with his contract expiring next month Leicester will lose the chance to cash in on the £26m valued midfielder.

Midfield partners Wilfred Ndidi and Boubakary Soumare are also likely to push for moves away from the King Power.
The £45m rated pair both former Champions League stars, though Ndidi’s appearances in the competition did come after joining Leicester on their run to the quarter-finals in 2016/17.
Full-back duo Ricardo Pereira and Timothy Castagne represent a £24m combination who will likely fetch a decent price due to having contracts running until 2026 and 2025 respectively.
However, like Tielemans Leicester are set to see a loss of income for centre-back Caglar Soyuncu.
The £13m-rated Turkish international is also out of contract in the summer, with reports suggesting he is set to join Atletico Madrid on a free transfer.
Numerous other stars may also leave the King Power Stadium this summer, with a number of stars likely to pursue moves back to the top flight or overseas.
