Leicester close on first signing of the summer

Premier League leaders Leicester City are in advanced talks for Sporting Gijon defender Luis Hernandez, according to El Desmarque.

The experienced centre-back will be out of contract at the end of the season and he has already decided to leave los Rojiblancos for greener pastures.

While Malaga and Real Betis are also keen on his services, the latest reports suggest King Power Stadium should be his next destination.

Namely, high flying Leicester City lead the chase at the moment and they are expected to reach an agreement in the coming days.

The Foxes need to add more bodies to the squad considering they will be playing Champions League football next term, and chances are Luis Hernandez will become their first signing of the 2016/2017 season.

The Real Madrid graduate has spent last five years at Sporting Gijon, making a total of 130 league appearances, and he largely impressed in his maiden La Liga campaign.
