SPORT revealed on Monday that an English club had made a move for Barcelona's Francisco Trincao. On Tuesday, The Guardian have reported that the club in question is Leicester City.

The newspaper says the Foxes want to take the Portuguese forward on a two-year loan with an obligation to make the deal permanent for 50 million euros at the end of the loan. 

Barca agreed to pay Braga 31 million euros for Trincao in January, with the player remaining in Portugal until the end of the season. 

The 20-year-old has shone for Braga, scoring eight goals and setting up eight more in just 27 games, with the majority coming after his transfer to Camp Nou was confirmed. 

His performances have drawn attention from across Europe but Barça are reluctant to sell someone who has not yet even began training with them. 

Trincao has a contract until 2025 and a release clause set at 500 million euros. But the need to raise money to make signings (Lautaro, Eric Garcia and Neymar) could force them to change their stance if they can't manage to move on other players (Coutinho, Rakitic, Semedo, Junior).
