Many Leicester City fans have discussed a transfer rumour linking defender Ricardo Pereira to Tottenham Hotspur.
According to Leicestershire Live’s Twitter account dedicated to the football club, new Spurs coach Jose Mourinho is being ‘tipped’ to make a move for the right-back, with the North London club lacking depth in that position.
So far this campaign, Pereira has been in top-class form, mirroring the standards set by the rest of the side and some.
Despite the Foxes bringing in James Justin in the summer, the right-back has not missed a second of this campaign – alongside centre-backs Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans – helping contribute to the best defensive record in the division (eight conceded in 12).
Additionally, the Portuguese player has been able to score two goals for the club, proving his ability in both defence and attacking.
With an average rating from WhoScored of 7.62 – the third-best in the squad – there is no surprise to hear rumours, even if Leicester fans don’t want to hear them, as you can read below…
