Portuguese daily newspaper A Bola claims that Leicester City are hot on the trail of Benfica winger Mehdi Carcela-Gonzalez.
The Foxes plan to strengthen the wing positions in the summer transfer window and the Morrocan has emerged as one of their primary targets.
Carcela has enjoyed a very good debut season at Estadio da Luz despite failing to nail down a regular starting berth, but there is a chance he could leave in search of first team football.
PSV Eindhoven were the first top side to show interest in his services, but they could now face stiff competition from the Premier League champions for the player’s signature.
Leicester City have asked Benfica to name their price for the talented footballer and it is believed the Eagles would consider offers in the region of €8m to €10m.
Mehdi Carcela, who switched his allegiance form Belgium to Morocco, did well to score 2 goals and set up 6 more in 20 league appearances this term.
