Leicester City have reportedly made the first contacts for the signing of Nuno Moreira from Portuguese side Sporting.

It’s newspaper Record who reports it this Monday, claiming the Foxes are interested in signing the midfielder as a free agent in the summer.

But as you can see in the image attached below, Leicester City are not alone in the race. They face the competition from Celta Vigo, Genoa and especially West Ham.

The Hammers are said to be the club who are the ‘closest’ on signing the player, as they seem to have gone a little bit further than the other clubs in the race, but Leicester aren’t ruled out.

Nuno Moreira is still in Sporting’s academy, and his lack of chances in the first team would be one of the reasons for him to leave.

Sporting want to keep him, but face obstacles.

Leicester City may have to put in a better financial offer than their Premier League rival.
