Leicester City eye Brazilian forward Sasha

Rio de Janeiro English football champions Leicester City are preparing a second offer for Brazilian forward Eduardo Sasha, media reports said. Brazilian Serie A outfit Internacional have already rejected a nine million euro ($9.9 million) bid for their 60 per cent share of the 24-year-old's economic rights, the Uol news portal said on Tuesday. Leicester will send representatives to the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre in the coming days in an attempt to complete the transfer in the first week of July, the report added. The remainder of Sasha's economic rights are held by the player himself (30 per cent) and investor Delcir Sonda (10 per cent). Sasha, whose contract with Internacional runs until the end of 2017, has also been linked to Manchester United and Udinese.
