This Monday, we covered a couple of stories from Portugal which linked Leicester City to Portuguese right-back Ricardo Pereira.

The 24-year-old, who now plays for Porto, had worked under Claude Puel at Nice a couple of years ago, and would now be wanted by the French boss at the Premier League side.

And it seems that he is not the only former Nice player who Puel is after. Because as reported by Calcio Mercato, left-back Dalbert is also wanted by Leicester City.

The Brazilian player arrived at Inter Milan on a €20m deal last summer, but could already be off from the Serie A side if some decent offers arrive.

Calcio Mercato claims that a bid of less than €10m could be enough to take the player, as he couldn’t really meet expectations Inter.

Dalbert is reportedly receiving approaches from several sides, and Leicester City are the only one named in the story. Could it mean they are leading the race?
