Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson is reportedly interested in adding Metalist Kharkiv midfielder Sebastian Blanco to his squad.

Leicester City are reportedly considering a move for Metalist Kharkiv midfielder Sebastian Blanco.

The Argentine is rated at around £6m, but the Ukrainian outfit could be willing to part with him at a cut price due to financial difficulties, the Daily Mail reports.

Blanco, who has scored in his last two appearances for Metalist, operates as an attacking midfielder and is comfortable playing on either wing.

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson is said to be hoping to add another goalkeeper, centre-back, two strikers and midfielder to his squad ahead of their return to the Premier League.
