According to talkSPORT presenter Geoff Peters, Leicester City are in ‘advanced talks’ to sign Ayoze Perez.
Peters claims that the Spaniard may even have a medical at the King Power Stadium ‘this week’, suggesting the 25-year-old is closing in on becoming Brendan Rodgers first summer signing at Leicester.
The broadcaster also suggests that a fee has been agreed, with Perez believed to have been in Leicester today alongside his agent to meet club officials:
And so it begins..
We know Perez has talked a lot about a potential move away in recent months, with his exit seeming increasingly likely following Rafa’s exit, however it had looked like Valencia were in poll position to sign him.
He’s sounded like a man keen to return home and play with a top 6 side in La Liga, but, unfortunately, a move to Leicester would be seen as an upgrade on Newcastle United right now.
Are they a ‘bigger club’? No. But they’ve got a good manager, they spend money, they have a talented squad and are challenging the top 7.
What a disastrous summer this has been so far..
