Report: Leicester City interested in Tottenham Hotspur’s Etienne Capoue

Leicester City reportedly want to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Etienne Capoue, and so do West Bromwich Albion.

Leicester City are interested in Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Etienne Capoue, according to Sky Sports.

Sky Sports claims that the Foxes are in negotiations for the 26-year-old France international, who joined Spurs from Toulouse in the summer of 2013.

It has been reported that struggling Premier League outfit want to sign Capoue on loan for the rest of the season.

The Birmingham Mail reports that West Bromwich Albion are also interested in the Spurs player.

Should Capoue leave?

If Capoue has offers to leave Tottenham on loan for the remainder of the season, then he should take the one that suits him best and have a stint away from White Hart Lane.

As things stand, the Frenchman is just a squad player under manager Mauricio Pochettino, and that is not likely to change in the coming months.

Capoue has featured in just 12 Premier League games so far this season, in which he has created a total of a four chances and has a pass accuracy of 87%.

The former Toulouse star has yet to convince that he can meet the demands of the Premier League, and he is clearly not a player who is very highly rated by Pochettino.
