Leicester join Man Utd, Arsenal in chase for Sporting CP whizkid Nuno Mendes

Leicester City have joined a host of clubs interested in Sporting CP left-back Nuno Mendes.

The 18-year-old is one of the most highly sought after talents in Europe.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have all scouted the Portugal U21 international.

And the Daily Mail has added Leicester to the list of interested parties.

Mendes has a release clause of £40m, but the report claims Sporting would be willing to accept a lower price due to the financial problems caused by COVID-19.
