Sidnei Tavares came up through the ranks of Leicester City’s youth system and made three first team appearances in the second half of the 2020/21 season.

The 19-year-old made his debut for the Foxes in a Europa League tie in February, and went on to make two more appearances in the league, which included a start in his side’s win over Brighton & Hove Albion in March.

His contract expires at the end of this month and Brendan Rodgers had earlier stated the club were in talks with the midfielder’s representatives over a contract extension.

There’s been no progress on this front and as things stand, the Portugal U19 international will leave Leicester as a free agent this summer. His situation at the King Power Stadium has caught attention in Italy.

According to Inter Live, the teenager is ‘very popular’ at Inter Milan and they are ‘very interested’ in signing the player.

The Italian champions, however, will face ‘two obstacles’ in bringing Tavares in.

That’s because AC Milan and Napoli are also interested in taking him, possibly on a no cost deal.

Leicester have less than a month and they need to act fast if they want to retain the midfielder at the club.
