Leicester City are closing in on a £30million move for Newcastle United star Ayoze Perez, according to the latest reports.

Rafa Benitez’s departure as Newcastle boss has understandably thrown the future of a number of key players at the club into uncertainty.

Perez has been linked with a number of different clubs across Europe after he impressed during the 2018/19 season for Newcastle, during which he scored 12 goals and added two assists.

Valencia were recently linked with a move for the 25-year-old, with reports suggesting that Perez would be interested in a return to Spain in order to to improve his chances of representing his country at senior level.

According to a report from the BBC though, the Foxes are closing in on a £30million deal for the former Tenerife man after agreeing a fee with the Magpies.

Brendan Rodgers has already signed James Justin from Luton but could make more big-name additions should Harry Maguire depart in a deal which could fetch north of £70million.

Perez is now expected to discuss personal terms with the Midlands club, and then an announcement would be imminent following a medical.
