Juventus are being linked with Leicester City defender Ricardo Pereira as they look to sign a new right-back.

The Italian champions could be set to lose Joao Cancelo this summer with Manchester City among the interested parties, and they are keeping an eye out for a replacement.

Tottenham Hotspur star Kieran Trippier has also been mentioned as a possible target as new Juve boss Maurizio Sarri ponders a return to England to make a signing.

The former Chelsea boss will know both players well and the Foxes are bracing themselves for interest in their star full-back.

Leicester themselves are looking to sign a new right-back this summer, with Luton Town star James Justin known to be a top target for boss Brendan Rodgers.

However he would be viewed as back-up to Pereira not his replacement, and the Foxes would fight to keep hold.

Reports in the Italian publication Tuttosport claim that the Bianconeri could offer 25million euros, but that would fall well short of Leicester’s valuation even if they were to consider selling.
