Premier League leaders Leicester plot £11m move for Peru star

Premier League leaders Leicester City could make a move for Sporting Lisbon winger Andre Carrillo in January, report the Daily Express.

The Foxes have been the story the season so far, topping the Premier League at Christmas and are two points ahead of second place Arsenal.

The club have been relatively lucky with injuries this season with all their key players staying fit, but now manager Claudio Ranieri could be set to add reinforcements to ensure they remain in the top order.

A 24-year old Peruvian international, Carrillo is understood to be valued at around £11m for the Portuguese giants.

He was banned earlier this season by the club for refusing to sign a contract extension, and his deal is due to expire in June.

It is thought that the King Power Stadium outfit saw a £9m bid rebuffed over the summer, though they are reportedly set to reignite their interest.
