Leicester City 'not interested' in signing Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo

Leicester City are reportedly not interested in Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo this summer, despite suggestions to the contrary.

Leicester City have apparently not identified Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo as a transfer target this summer, despite reports to the contrary.

The newly-promoted Foxes are said to be after a big-name striker for their return to the Premier League and were recently linked with 31-year-old Cardozo.

However, according to the Leicester Mercury, Cardozo is not a target, with Brighton & Hove Albion's Leonardo Ulloa and Fraizer Campbell of Cardiff City said to be more realistic possibilities.

Paraguay's Cardozo recently admitted that he could leave Benfica this summer, suggesting that the Russian league might be a possible destination.
