Gelson Fernandes’ agent has told the press that Leicester are in talks to sign the 24 year old.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Marcel Schmid said.

‘The two clubs are in discussions about a deal, Eriksson is a big admirer of Gelson having worked with him at Manchester City.’

Eriksson has previously called the player ‘the best young player in Switzerland’ back he signed him for around £4m in 2007.

After falling out of favour at City he moved to St Etienne.
