Report: Leicester City linked with Robinho

Leicester City and Swansea City are both said to be interested in Robinho.

According to a report on the Daily Mail’s live transfer feed at 10:29, Robinho could make a sensational switch to Leicester City.

The Brazilian is keen to move back to the Premier League, as he has a point to prove in England.

Robinho struggled to live up to expectations while with Manchester City six years ago, but he is reportedly eager to test himself in England’s top flight again.

The 32-year-old is a free agent, after seeing his contract at Guangzhou Evergrande expire.

Robinho has held initial discussions with Leicester over a move, while Swansea City are also interested.

There is no rush for Robinho to make a move before deadline day, as because he is a free agent, he is available to make a switch after the close of the transfer window.

Leicester and Swansea are under pressure to act quickly, though, as Juventus are also said to be interested in the high profile attacker.
