Leicester City have been rather impressive under the guidance of Claude Puel in the current campaign, but they could still do with bringing in a couple of quality players in January.
The Foxes have managed to get the very best out of James Maddison so far this season, so they’ll be looking to work their magic once again next month. Interestingly, it appears as if the East Midlands club are eyeing a possible addition, as according to AS (via Sports Witness), Leicester City have joined the race to sign Ibai Gomez.
It’s understood that Claude Puel’s side have joined the race to sign the attacker.
Indeed, the 29-year-old as established himself as one of the hottest topics over in Spain in the current campaign, having scored three times and set up two goals in La Liga.
However, it appears as if the Foxes will face competition in the race for the Spaniard, as Leeds United will reportedly return with an offer for him.
Gomez is valued at £4.5 million (by Transfermarkt).
The Foxes will be desperate to secure the services of the winger in the January transfer window, as he has the ability to really excel in the Premier League.
Of course, with Premier League football and a potential place in European being on offer for Gomez at the King Power Stadium, perhaps it will be an easy decision for him.
