Foxes in the hunt for Sporting starlet

11th March 2019, 15:43 by Alex Jack

Sporting Lisbon midfielder Nuno Moreira is believed to be a transfer target for new Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers this summer.

The 19-year-old has lacked a pathway through to the first-team at Sporting and reports suggest the player is ready to leave the Portuguese outfit as a free agent this summer.

Leicester are thought to be one of the clubs keeping tabs on the player but the Foxes look like they will face stern competition as they try to land Moreira before next season.

Premier League rivals West Ham are also believed to be monitoring the situation at Sporting, while Celta Vigo and Genoa have also been credited with an interest.
