Premier League pair Leicester City and Watford are looking to sign a new left-back this summer with A Bola claiming that they are keen on Pedro Rebocho.

The Foxes need an understudy for Ben Chilwell with veteran Christian Fuchs out of contract and eyeing a move to the MLS while Watford while Adam Masina has endured a disappointing debut season at Vicarage Road.

 

According to A Bola, Leicester and Watford will now turn to the former Portugal U21 international Rebocho, who has shone in a struggling Guingamp side this season.

The swashbuckling full-back has produced 11 assists in 39 games for a team who are stuck to the bottom of the Ligue 1 table.

A Bola points out that Guingamp could accept offers of around £3.5 million, although Rebocho’s price-tag could be reduced if they are relegated from the French top flight.
