The Portuguese keeper is wanted in England but may end up with Sporting
Leicester City’s excellent season might be coming toward a potentially glorious end but it would appear they are not just getting prepared for a party. It seems the club are already starting to consider their transfer options for next season.
According to reports in Portugal one of those options is a talented goalkeeper in the form of Portuguese under-23 international Joao Miguel Silva.
He has featured in 18 games for the club this season and looks like a top talent for the future.
However, there is a stumbling block to any potential move.
The report claims that Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon have the first-option rights to sign the player this summer, meaning any negotiations could become quite complicated for The Foxes.
A new keeper would be key for Leicester.
Whilst Kasper Schmeichel has been superb they have little in reserve – with veteran Mark Schwarzer and Ben Hamer not inspiring confidence in reserve.
So it will be interesting to see how Leicester get on in their pursuit of Miguel.
