Leicester could return for Sporting Lisbon winger

LeicesterArsenal.jpgThe Leicester City supporters inside the Transfer Tavern have had many a boozy night during this season so far and it is no surprise.

The East Midlands-based outfit have been the surprise package of the Premier League to date and currently sit fifth in the Premier League.

Many punters had goaded fans of the Foxes is in the summer with many placing bets with their drinking partners that new boss Claudio Ranieri wouldn’t last until Christmas – how wrong could they be.

It appears that the Foxes intend on staying in the top half of the table too and a couple of their fans playing pool haven been drawn to an article in the Leicester Mercury, which claims the club had a bid for Sporting Lisbon winger Andre Carrillo turned down in the summer.

It is thought that the club may return for the player in the summer given the club’s flying start to the season.

A bid of £15 million should be enough to see Lisbon do business on the winger and one punter eating a pack of dry roasted nuts thinks the player would really do a job in the Premier League.

Leicester fans… Do you agree with the punter eating the nuts that the player could do a job for the Foxes? What areas of the squad do you think need strengthening?
