Leicester City are reportedly interested in the Boca Juniors midfielder Nahitan Nández.

The claims come from Argentine radio Continental and is covered by the local version of Marca on Tuesday.

It’s said that the player was close to joining Italian side Cagliari, but with the talks reaching an impasse, Leicester City took the chance to start conversations.

The Foxes have been following the player ‘closely’, and have reportedly asked for a meeting with Nandez’s entourage so they can make him an offer.

The meeting is set to happen in Italy, where the player’s entourage is staying due to the talks with Cagliari.

Marca says that Boca Juniors had already made two signings looking to replace Nandez due to his expected departure, so he isn’t exactly needed at the Argentine side going forward.

That should be good news for Leicester City, who now must make a better bid than Cagliari did.
