Leeds United and Leicester City are both interested in Los Angeles FC midfielder José Cifuentes, according to claims around the player.
It’s French outlet Jeunes Footeux who reveals that the Premier League sides, along with Napoli, have been ‘watching’ the 23-year-old.
The report mentions Leeds United are a club who ‘want to strengthen their midfield’, while Leicester City ‘could lose Youri Tielemans’.
The competition for the signing is said to be tough, as ‘a dozen European clubs’ are also ‘closely following’ the player, although only those three sides are actually mentioned in the story.
Despite highlighting Cifuentes’ characteristics, claiming he’s ‘a good passer, able to break lines with very good vision of the game’, Jeunes Footeux don’t really bring many details on Leeds or Leicester City’s talks for the signing.
The story only mentions that the player has a price estimated at €6.5m by Transfermarkt, and says the transfer should ‘certainly be talked about in the coming month’.
A situation to keep an eye on as the transfer window moves through its final month.
