Championship club Leicester City are showing interest in Urawa Reds midfielder Yuki Abe according to foxes-online.

The Foxes made an offer for the Japan international and it seems likely that he will become Paulo Sousa's latest addition to the squad that is so far winless in their opening three league matches.

28-year old Abe, who has played his entire career in his homeland, has made 49 appearances for his national team and is believed to be keen on the move so he can experience life and football in England.
