Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly joined Barcelona in tracking Leicester City right-back Ricardo Pereira.

Leicestershire Live report that the French giants are tracking the Portuguese international as a possible replacement for Thomas Meunier.

Belgian international Meunier has been tipped to join either Arsenal or Manchester United this summer, which could leave Thomas Tuchel short in the right-back role. 

Pereira was a regular under both Claude Puel and Brendan Rodgers last season, impressing with his consistent displays in the Premier League. 

The 25-year-old made the move to the King Power Stadium last summer from FC Porto, with the Foxes paying £20m for Pereira’s services. 

Rodgers is eyeing Luton Town full-back James Justin as a possible deputy to Pereira following the departure of Danny Simpson, so the Foxes will be desperate to keep hold of the impressive right-back this summer. 

However, if either PSG or Barcelona make a lucrative offer for the player, Leicester may well be tempted to cash in on the player this summer. 


Who could Leicester target if Pereira departs?
