Leeds United are reportedly among the clubs eyeing up the potential transfer of forward Fabio Jalo this January.
The talented 17-year-old has really caught the eye in League One in recent times, and it seems he’s attracting interest from a host of clubs as we edge closer to winter.
According to Team Talk, Leeds are one of the names in the frame, along with Premier League sides Everton, Brighton and Fulham.
Leeds would do well to try to win the race for the Portuguese wonderkid, as they could perhaps be more likely to be able to offer him regular playing time straight away.
Leeds are chasing promotion from the Championship this season, and Jalo looks like he’d do well to test himself at that level before a Premier League club.
Both players’ contracts will run out at the end of the current campaign, leaving them free to negotiate with clubs in January over a free transfer in the summer. Leicester are said to be keen on offering both players new deals, having featured heavily in their record breaking start to the Championship.
Ndidi has made 15 appearances in all competitions with three goals and four assists, while Iheanacho has featured in 17 games with six goals and two assists to his name. The Foxes are yet to make a breakthrough with either player when it comes to extending their stay at the King Power, according to the report.
Leeds United’s victory over Enzo Maresca’s side last Friday saw Daniel Farke’s side cut the deficit to the top of the table by three points, but there’s plenty of games to play between now and the end of the season. The departure of the two players from Leicester could well hand the Whites a welcome boost in the push for a return to the Premier League, if they opt to cash in during the January transfer window before they leave on a free in the summer.
