Clearly not happy with the way his team’s season is going, Claudio Ranieri has decided to bring in some fresh blood this January.
According to Mohamed Bouhafsi in France, Wilfred Ndidi might not be the only player arriving at the King Power Stadium this January, with Ludogorets winger Jonathan Cafu a player on the club’s agenda.
The French journalist tweeted on Wednesday afternoon that executives from the Foxes were meeting the Brazilian forward’s agents, with no further details revealed.

The 25-year-old, who arrived in Bulgaria during the summer of 2015 from Sao Paulo, has made a name for himself this season while playing in the Champions League, where he scored two and picked up two assists in six games.
Leicester aren’t the only ones interested, as both Lazio and Lyon have been linked with a move for the player for a while now.
However, the latest news that Lyon have turned their attention to Memphis Depay could suggest Cafu has already made his mind up, and Leicester could be his next destination.
As for Lazio, their efforts seem to be focused on Ajax winger Anwar El Ghazi, as they also look to offload Keita Baldé if possible.
Back in October, the player’s agent told Sport Witness’ Lucas Sposito that while he’d spoken to both Lyon and Lazio, he’d heard nothing from Leicester.
That’s about to change, it seems.
