Leicester City are reportedly considering a January move for Benfica defender Andre Almeida, who could cost in the region of £6m.

Benfica defender Andre Almeida is reportedly attracting the attention of Leicester City.

The Foxes have impressed since the arrival of new boss Claude Puel with five wins and two draws coming from nine matches in the Premier League, but the East Midlands outfit remain without a recognised right-back to challenge Danny Simpson.

Last week, Hoffenheim defender Pavel Kaderabek was linked with a switch to the King Power Stadium and according to The Sun, Almeida is also on the club's radar.

The 27-year-old has spent almost six years at Benfica, while Almeida has also won eight caps for Portugal although his last appearance came in 2015.

Almeida - who is said to be valued in the region of £6m - has started 15 league matches this season, with a further four outings coming in the Champions League.
