Juventus move for Leicester defender Ricardo Pereira

Juventus are moving for Leicester City defender Ricardo Pereira.

The Sun says he is ready to hand Leicester another defensive hammer blow and quit to join Juventus.

Boss Brendan Rodgers is already set to lose £80million-rated Harry Maguire this summer, with both Manchester City and United weighing up moves.

And with Pep Guardiola closing in on Juve full-back Joao Cancelo, the Italians want Portuguese star Pereira as a replacement.

Pereira enjoyed a brilliant first year in the Premier League and was named the Foxes' Player of the Season after signing from Porto last summer for £22m.
