Leicester City are ready to make a real statement of intent following their return to the Premier League, with the Daily Mail reporting that the Foxes could sign former Inter Milan and Argentina star Esteban Cambiasso on a two-year deal.
The report suggests that the two parties are in discussions over a potential deal to bring Cambiasso to the King Power Stadium, although Foxes manager Nigel Pearson is seemingly keen to assess the player’s fitness before committing to a deal bringing him to the East Midlands.
There may also be a hitch regarding the length of contract, with Cambiasso set to sign a two-year contract that would take him to the age of 35, something that may put strain on the Foxes’ wage budget.
It would be a real statement of intent from Leicester, however, who have already spent big on Brighton & Hove Albion striker Leonardo Ulloa following their return to the top flight as Championship title winners after a long absence.
Survival will be the first aim for Pearson and his team, with a player who holds the experience and nous of Cambiasso potentially being a huge asset to a side likely to be scrapping it out at the bottom of the table.
