Leicester City are one of the Premier League clubs who often scout games in Portugal, and they were involved in another mission this weekend.
As reported by newspaper A Bola, the Foxes had officials at Porto’s 4-2 away win against Paços Ferreira on Sunday, with the Dragons guaranteeing their six-point advantage at the top of the league table.
It’s been a while since Leicester City were linked to Porto players, but we should recall that the last year, they were said to be keen on midfielder Otávio.
The Brazilian had a not so usual role last night, playing more centrally with the job of stopping Paços’ attacks. He had a fairly good performance and even made an assist.
Now in case the Foxes were looking for new targets, there are a couple of Porto stars who stood out with their performance. Midfielder Vitinha and striker Mehdi Taremi continue having a great season and both got the maximum rating from newspaper Record.
Leicester City’s scouts were accompanied by officials from Manchester United Atletico Madrid, Freiburg, Real Valladolid, Tenerife and Club Brugge.
