Leicester scout Benfica pair Andre Almeida and Rafa Silva

Leicester City are eyeing Benfica pair Andre Almeida and Rafa Silva.

O Jogo says the pair were on the Foxes radar in January but the Premier League side decided not to follow up their interest.

Almeida, 27, has been attracting interest from several clubs, however the Foxes £5million valuation last month was way short of the £15m the Portuguese giants wanted for their right-back.

Leicester boss Claude Puel sent scouts to run the rule over Almeida and Silva who both starred in Benfica's 4-0 win at home to Boavista on Saturday.

Leicester progressed to the FA Cup quarter-finals after beating Sheffield United at the King Power last Friday.
